Kim and Matt on Eric Wrinkles' letter
Eric says he hopes to provide Kim, Matt, Tracy and his two children with some closure before execution day. He recently sent Kim and Matt an apology. "I owe you both a great debt—a great debt that I can never repay," he writes. "I'm truly sorry about what I did and how I affect both of you. I still hold a lot of love in my heart for you, Kim and Matt, and I pray that this letter eases your pain, at least a little, and that you can move on with your lives and be happy, healthy and at peace with things for the rest of what I hope will be long lives."

Kim says she's not sure she can trust Eric's apology—but seeing him die won't bring her any resolution. "I forgave him a long time ago," Kim says. "I don't want to carry that hate with me for the rest of my life."

Matt agrees. "I just think he should sit in jail for the rest of his life. Taking him is not going to bring my parents back."
