Prisoner confesses to killing ‘I-5 Strangler’ to avenge killer’s victims

A California prisoner has confessed to killing the so-called “I-5 Strangler” after intentionally arranging for them to share a cell — calling it “a mission for avenging” the serial killer’s many victims.

Jason Budrow, 40, wrote a five-page letter to The Mercury Information confessing to killing Roger Kibbe, 81, with a jiu-jitsu-style “triangle choke” the day they grew to become cellmates at Mule Creek State Jail in Ione.

Regardless of being a convicted pedophile and killer himself, Budrow mentioned in his letter that he was moved by “a darkish omen and non secular calling” after watching in jail a TV particular about Kibbe’s reign of terror within the 1970s and ’80s.

The serial killer ultimately confessed to the slayings, rapes and kidnappings of seven ladies, together with a youngster — pleading responsible to keep away from the demise penalty.

Budrow mentioned he watched the TV doc in “horrifying disgust and heart-wrenching empathy” and “it was the report of his youngest sufferer that impacted me the deepest,” referring to a 17-year-old lady.

It “advanced right into a mission for avenging that youngest lady and all of Roger Kibbe’s different victims,” he wrote, in accordance to the paper.

He determined in November to kill Kibbe, spending months “grooming” his jail sufferer and arranging for them to share a cell earlier than putting on Feb. 27.

Earlier than dying, Kibbe confessed that he murdered the ladies “for sport,” wrote Budrow, who has “666” tattooed above his proper eye and mentioned he carved “a crude inverted pentagram” into Kibbe’s physique.

He believes Kibbe’s victims’ souls “have been launched from the possession of their killer and I pray that they now relaxation in peace.”

To date, Budrow has not been charged over the demise, the paper mentioned, citing courtroom information. And the inmate — who’s already serving life with out the potential for parole — doesn’t care anyway.

He inspired officers to “go forward” if they need to “search demise penalty prosecution towards me for murder-one with particular circumstances (mendacity in wait, execution fashion, desecrating a corpse, no matter).”

“I’m down to check my idea that no jury throughout a penalty section of my potential demise penalty trial will ever vote to see me executed for murdering Roger Kibbe, the ‘I-5 Stranger,’” he wrote confidently.
