I didn't kill them for any satisfaction. It was distasteful. It was dreadful. Of course, I was able to do it because of my general rage against society.
Meredith Emerson was a recent college graduate who disappeared while taking her beloved dog, Ella, for a hike on Georgia's Blood Mountain on New Year's Day, 2008. Cheryl Dunlap was a nurse whose body was found in Florida's Apalachicola National Forest after she failed to show up to teach her regular Sunday School class in December 2007. Vibrant, beautiful, caring women, loved by their friends and families, with everything to live for. . .until they fell into the trap of Gary Michael Hilton, a former Green Beret paratrooper and expert outdoorsman with a twisted lust for violence. What they suffered at his hands was unspeakable. Even after two convictions, the question remains--how many innocent victims were prey to his evil designs?
Includes killer's shocking confession and 16 pages of dramatic photos.
