Madman Left Chilling Suicide Note Before Luring Firefighters to Death
A convicted murderer — committed to “do what I like doing best: killing people” — left a chilling suicide note before murdering two firefighters.
William Spengler Jr. lived with his sister on the opposite ends of their house. Police have found charred remains they believe to be Spengler’s sister.
His suicide note said, “I still have to see how much of the neighborhood I can burn down.” He managed to burn down seven houses.
Spangler spent 17 years in prison for beating his grandmother to death with a hammer.
Cops found a third victim of ex-con William Spengler Jr.’s murderous rampage, discovering a body, thought to be his 67-year-old sister Cheryl, in the charred rubble of their home. Spengler and his sister hated each other and lived on opposite ends of the house, neighbors said.
His three-page note also said, “I still have to … do what I like doing best: killing people,” He apparently killed four people that fateful day, including himself.
Biblical justice would have saved the sister and firemen. “Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man. Genesis 9:6). “And he that killeth any man shall surely be put to death” (Leviticus 24:17).
But after beating his grandmother to death he got 17 years in prison, instead of the death penalty.
