Product Information

William C. Batten, was convicted on two counts of first-degree murder while armed with a deadly weapon. He was sentenced to confinement for two terms of life to be served consecutively.

Within 6 hours after his arrest he told an officer of the Washington State Patrol that on the evening of April 14 he encountered two young women (whom he had earlier that day transported to the beach area) at a campfire along the beach, that he accompanied them into a driftwood shelter, that he tied the girls' wrists with twine he had in his pocket, that he attempted to gag them, that one of them screamed, and that he then "lashed out with the knife he had brought with him and stabbed the girl a few times." Thereupon, he related to the officer, he knew "he would have to silence the second girl because if he didn't she would tell on him." He did stab the other woman, left the shelter, heard one of them moan, and then "went back inside and stabbed her two more times . . ." Finally, he related to the officer that he returned home, washed the blood off his hands and knife, "replaced the knife into the kitchen drawer where he had obtained it in the first place" and placed his clothing in his father's woodbox.

One page typed letter. Letter is general content and is signed in full in pen. Original matching handwritten letter is included.
