“Robert Latimer, a man who had for some years been in my employ as janitor, was my next victim.

“Several years previous, before I had ever taken human life, he had known of certain insurance work I had engaged in, and when, in after years, he sought to extort money from me, his own death and the sale of his body was the recompense meted out to him.

“I confined him within the secret room, and slowly starved him to death. Of this room and its secret gas supply and muffled windows and doors, sufficient has already been printed.

Finally, needing its use for another purpose and because his pleadings had become almost unbearable, I ended his life.”
