Sondra London checking in with another murder confession from the Happy Face
Killer, Keith Hunter Jesperson.
The following confession was written by Jesperson on 10/20/97 and mailed out
to me in an envelope citing the return address of another prisoner. It is
Jesperson's expressed wish that I release this statement via the internet.
With Keith Jesperson it is essential to bear in mind that his statements are
always self-serving and often contradictory. On June 20, 1996, he sent me a
list of his victims, with the following comment appended: "The death could be
in one state shown above and dropped in another state. Angela was picked up
in Washington and killed in Wyoming and dropped in Nebraska, for example."
Then on 9/30/97, he stated flatly, "I didn't kill anyone in Wyoming and I
will prove it. The body was found in Nebraska over 200 miles from Wyoming."
(The handwritten statements have been posted to sondralondon.com.)
So now, for what it's worth, here is the full text of the latest statement on
the Subrize case that The Happy Face Killer wants released to the public:
by Keith Jesperson
I met Angela Subrize at the Ridpath Hotel in downtown Spokane, Washington
state, the night of the 19th of January, 1995. In 20 minutes, I talked her
into spending the night with me in my hotel room. In the morning, I kissed
her good-bye and left her all I had in my wallet - $30. She was broke and new
to Spokane. I also left her my trucking company's phone number if she should
ever call me and want to see me again.
On the morning of the 21st, she had called the company and they relayed the
message to call her. At 9:00 P.M. that night, I called her again and she
talked to me and explained she needed to get to Fort Collins, Colorado, to
see her dad. I told her I would pick her up Sunday night and give her a ride
to her dad's home.
At 12:30 A.M. Monday morning the 23rd, I picked her up and went to Seattle to
deliver my load. That afternoon we were headed east towards Colorado. On the
26th, she called her dad from Fort Bridger, Wyoming, and her dad didn't want
her to come home. On the morning of the 27th, she called her dad again from
Sinclair, Wyoming. Again, he didn't want to see his daughter.
Then she called an old friend in Indiana and wanted to hurry up to get there
because he was allowing her to stay with him. He had wanted to marry her, and
she was willing to have him marry her because she told me she was pregnant
with a drug dealer's baby, and needed a father. [REDACTED]
She talked me into giving her the ride to Indiana, but I told her it would
take a couple of days the way the weather and roads were.
Later that night, after driving through a blizzard most of the day, I pulled
into the Burns Brothers Truck Stop and checked my tarps and tie-down straps.
I tried to lay down for a few hours, but Angela wanted me to hurry along and
she used her body to talk me into driving further that night.
After sex we headed east, but I had a hard time keeping my eyes open so at
the first rest area 25 miles or so into Nebraska, I pulled in and laid down
to rest for a few hours. Angela wouldn't keep quiet. She complained about
being parked in the rest area instead of a truck stop where she could drink
coffee and watch TV while I slept.
I had been there for maybe 20 minutes when she came into the sleeper and
pushed on me to wake me up. She was bored and wanted to get to a truck stop
where there was something to do,. I went into a rage and grabbed her by the
throat and strangled her to death. Then I set my alarm and went to sleep.
A few hours later, I drove to the rest area at mile marker 200 and tied her
body under my trailer back by the rear axles. Dragging her by her ankles and
face down, I drove for 12 miles or so, and pulled over and cut the rope
hooked to the trailer and dragged what was left of her down the shoulder and
left it in the tall grass. I drove to exit 305 and went to sleep till
In all of my nine cases to date, all of them died in the same state as where
I got rid of the bodies.
