ATLANTA, GA (September 10, 2012) -- Anthony Meoli, M.A., J.D., CFC has published The Diary of the D.C. Sniper. In the book, Meoli, a 2011 Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology graduate of Argosy University, Atlanta, presents a verbatim transcript of the diary of convicted serial murderer Lee Boyd Malvo.
Lee Malvo is serving six consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole for his involvement in the 2002 Beltway Sniper attacks. Over the course of three weeks, he and executed murderer John Allen Muhammad carried out sniper attacks killing ten and critically injuring three others in various locations around the Washington Metropolitan Area and along Interstate 95 in Virginia. These attacks were the culmination of dozens of shootings across the United States committed by the pair.
The diary was penned approximately two and a half years after Malvo’s prison sentence began and contains his original artwork and poetry. According to Malvo's confession, he and Muhammad had planned to kill “five people every day for a month in order to terrorize the nation."
“After years of written correspondence and over fifty hours of recorded telephone calls, Malvo decided it was time to tell his side of the story to the world,” says Meoli. The diary, “explains the details of his life which have never been fully known. It would be a combination of traumatic life events that would become the catalysts of change, eventually leading him to choose a path from which there was no return.” It provides incredible insight for readers into the long-term effects of childhood neglect, physical abuse, psychological distress and parental abandonment.
The book is available in hardcover from www.dippub.com/ as well as all major online retailers. Anthony Meoli also obtained the only full-life interview ever authorized by Lee Boyd Malvo. This exclusive 66-minute audio CD (also available separately for sale) provides listeners with an extremely rare chance to hear Malvo answer questions about his childhood, teenage years, meeting Muhammad, his training, his feelings and an intense final statement to the victims’ families and all who were affected by his actions.
