Photo of Col. WIlliams's letter to Laurie Massicotte, who has waived the right to have her name covered by a publication ban, that was released by the court: "Laurie, I am sorry for having hurt you the way I did. I really hope that the (illegible) we had has helped you turn your life around a bit. You seem like a bright woman, who could do much better for herself. I do hope you find a way to succeed."

Photo of Col. WIlliams's letter to Jessica Lloyd's mother that was released by the court: "Mrs. Lloyd, You won't believe me, I know, but I am sorry for having taken your daughter from you. Jessica was a beautiful, gentle young woman, as you know. I know she loved you very much -- she told me so again and again. I can tell you that she did not suffer that the end was coming -- Jessica was happy because she believed she was going home. I know you have already had a lot of pain in your life. I am sorry to have caused you more."
