Very interesting. Never heard of a situation where a juror convicts a felon of murder, sending him to jail for the rest of his life and communicating with him over the years. A study for psychologists one would imagine.

This is nothing. When I became a correction officer in NY State, my first facility was Auburn. Winston Moseley, who murdered Kitty Genovese in 1964 was there. In 1968, while incarcerated at Attica, he stuck a lightbulb up his ass, and had to be taken to the outside hospital in Buffalo, to have minor surgery to remove it. While being transported back to the facility, he hit the officer who was carrying the weapon (only one officer carries a weapon during transport, so the other officer can deal with the hand and leg cuffs), and stole the weapon. He escaped, and later took refuge at a vacant home of an elderly couple. When they came to check on the house, he took them hostage for three days. Tied up the man, and repeatedly raped the wife.

During the 3 years I spent at Auburn, the woman he raped came to visit him at least once a week, and would bring him packages, and leave him money. The human mind is a very strange thing. God only knows why she did it.

Mosely eventually ended up at Auburn, and worked in the Administration Building as a porter. I've been retired since 2003, and to this day, I have never been able to understand how someone convicted of a brutal, violent murder (Kitty Genovese), who escaped custody, took hostages, and raped a woman repeatedly, ever got a job working in the Administration Building, (which is actually situated outside the wall), and where a large majority of female civilians work. The F'er finally died at Clinton Correctional Facility in 2016. I hope he's rotting in Hell.
