“Mom, I just want y’all to know that I love you. No matter what in life, I want you to stay strong. Doreen, you have been a very special part of my life, too. I want you to keep doing what you are doing. Stay strong. Dad, I want you to stay strong.”

— Tony Chambers, convicted of abduction and murder, lethal injection, Texas

The day the body was found in a wood behinda middle school, Chambers provided the police with oral, written, and videotaped confessions about the rape and strangulation of an 11-year-old girl. In the confession, he included details about carvings on her stomach done with a protractor and scalpel which they believed only the killer would know.
