How to Get Away With Murder

By @MaxwellEverett

The Letter


If you’re reading this, it means I, Ted Shoemaker, am dead by gunshot to the head.

This was written three days in advance to my suicide. I have come to confess my crimes. I have murdered 5 men and 2 women, and if not for my conscious catching up to me, I would’ve killed more. I have did not assault, torture, or eat my victims; that was not my motive. If you look back my past, my motive will become quite clear to you.

If you had looked closer at the deaths, you perhaps could’ve caught me. But it is too late now. My victims will never truly get justice.

If you wish to confirm my claims, simply look through the files of Joshua Williams, Marco May, Donald Lane, Luke Ortiz, Samuel Nielsen, Lara Robinson, and Peggy Fox. These, despite popular belief, are not innocent men and women. The media won’t tell you this, but these are the people responsible for ruining my life, and taking my mothers.

If you don’t believe me, read the case files and it’ll all be clear.
