Suspected Killer Of Kelsey Smith Refers To Himself As 'Sweet Troubled Soul'Topics: National News
The sick bastard that (allegedly) murdered 18 year-old Kelsey Smith after abducting her from a Target parking lot, calls himself "Jack" and considers himself a "Sweet Troubled Soul" on his MySpace page. His interests include "eating small children and harming small animals."
The page appears to belong to Edwin R. Hall, the man accused of kidnapping 18-year-old Kelsey Smith and killing her, lending disturbing significance to the bizarre claims in light of the charges against him.The SOB has a wife and a 4-year-old son - which he is said to be very close to, and he abducts and kills a beautiful, loving, much loved and adored by her family and friends, 18-year-old girl that had just graduated from high school only two weeks before, and who looked forward to going to college, wanted to become a veterinarian, and who had a bright and promising future as a loving person with much to contribute to the world. In my mind, there just isn't a punishment sufficient for people like Hall, except of course in hell. And the sooner he gets there, the better!
Hall was charged Thursday with premeditated first-degree murder in Smith's death and aggravated kidnapping for her abduction Saturday from a Target store parking lot. His bond was set at $5 million.
Only the name "Jack," which Hall is known by to neighbors, is used on the MySpace page, and the picture posted strongly resembles the 26-year-old. The person on the MySpace page also uses the same age and location as Hall, and a person with the same name as his wife, Aletha, has a page linked to "Jack's."
In a photo on the page, the man is posing with a young boy. Neighbors said Hall and his wife have a 4-year-old son.
It was Hall's neighbors who told police he resembled the man they were looking for.
Cameron Migues, 30, said he and his wife laughed when they noticed a similarity between Hall and the man pictured in a surveillance video that police were using to solicit leads in the abduction. But then a video of the truck was released, and "we put two and two together," said Migues, who called a police hot line Wednesday morning.
According to her boyfriend, Kelsey had gone to the Target store just to buy a "little scrapbook" for her boyfriend so he "wouldn't lose the stuff"she had given him."
It cost her - her life.
There is a video here of Hall's court appearence; it also shows Kelsey receiving her high school diploma at her graduation ceremony. (Requieres Quick Time plugin)
