D.C. Sniper Apologizes

Lee Boyd Malvo, the younger of the two D.C. Snipers that terrorized the country with their killing spree, has offered an apology to one of his victims, sent in the mail.

The letter came as a surprise to John Gaeta, who was shot in the neck by Malvo and his partner.

The letter stated: "I am truly sorry for the pain I caused you and your loved ones. I was relieved to hear that you suffered no paralyzing injuries and that you are alive. Sincerely, Lee Boyd Malvo."

Up until now Gaeta had not been confirmed as a victim of the DC Snipers, and didn't know for sure who shot him, so though he is not ready to forgive Malvo he is glad to know once and for all who did it to him, and that that person will be behind bars for the rest of his life.

Lee Boyd Malvo may be trying to atone for his sins, committed as the younger half of the so-called D.C. sniper team that terrorized the Southeast and the nation's capital in 2002. John Gaeta, who was shot in the neck at a shopping mall in Louisiana, recently received a succinct letter of apology from Malvo, confirming what police have suspected since 2006, according to CNN. Gaeta read the note over the phone to CNN Wednesday, saying that Malvo both printed and signed his name to the letter.
