He didn't deny anything, but he didn't admit the murders, either. "I know I'm forgiven," he said.

What about the parents of the murdered girls, Deanna asked him. How could they forgive him? He told her they had a right to feel that way.

They left without any real answers.

Tony has continued to write. His mother and sister read his letters, but they don't really believe anything he says. Deanna's therapist warned her that the letters were classically sociopathic: He praises her, then asks for something. Or he plays the guilt card. "He blames it all on cocaine," she says.

In letters to his sister Gina, Tony seems to be reveling in his notoriety: He asks for copies of any newspaper stories she can find about his case.

He doesn't talk about guilt. He never says he's sorry. "Most of what he writes about," she says, "is his book."
