KILLER LETTERS-Part 2
“…HE LIKES BLACK LEATHER BOOTS & WHINES WHEN I TAKE THEM OFF”
Last Friday (8/13/21), we posted KILLER LETTERS as part of a series of reports regarding convicted child killer, Diane Downs. We explained that in 1987, crime writer, Ann Rule wrote the book Small Sacrifices that later turned into a television movie based on Rule’s book of the same name.
As reported, in 1987, private investigator John Stevens was brought into the case and as part of his involvement, he received multiple handwritten letters from Diane Downs.
Stevens also received from Diane Downs a copy of Rule’s book where Downs highlights and makes comments throughout the book.
According to one of Diane Downs’ letters, Ann Rule painted a false picture regarding her sexuality and the unidentified reporter that got her pregnant with Amy. Diane stated in part, “How about the fact that Amy’s father was a reporter that called me and seduced me, four months after the shooting. Everyone knows he’s a reporter because the media went nuts trying to get me to give up his name and I never did.”
