"Check Mate," The Killer Said

Michael Ross had more that one twist in his psyche. It turns out the Connecticut serial killer also had a twisted sense of humor.

Ross fought to waive the right to file further appeals of his conviction. After a trial court found his waiver competent, all Hell broke lose. New hearings, new lawyers, new psychiatrists.

Same result, though, Ross was found competent, and was killed, much to his heart's content.

Days after he was killed, a pyschiatrist who had testified in hearings to block the execution received a note from Ross. "Check, and check mate," Ross taunted. Check

I wonder what other letters he sent before he died.
