Newly released letters are giving a look into the mind of Nikolas Cruz, the man who has admitted to killing 17 people in the Parkland school shooting last year.
The letters were seized from his cell last year when Cruz had a run-in with a detention deputy, CBS Miami said.
A source told the station the letters are written to a girl in Europe who has developed an interest in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting.
In one letter, which contains misspellings and grammatical errors, he wrote that part of him wants to get the death penalty.
"(A) part of me is wishing to end. End with the death pentale. Letting someone inject me with long last sleep its kind of what I want but I’m unsure of myself so I’m just letting people save me from myself, saving me form something that I can never return from.”
Cruz's lawyers have said he will plead guilty in exchange for avoiding the death penalty.
