Letters from John Lennon's killer to cop up for auction

18 February 2013

New York, Feb 18 (ANI): A series of letters from John Lennon's murderer, Mark David Chapman, to Steve Spiro, the NYPD officer who arrested him, are set to go under the hammer.

The letters, which reveal a glimpse inside the mind of the disturbed killer, are likely to fetch 75,000 dollars, the New York Post reported.

The letters suggest that Chapman "wanted to be friends" with the police officer, who was first to reach the spot of the 1980 shooting, and that the two were "part of something big."

Chapman wrote that Lennon was a phony of the highest degree, but there were others who could - and would - have served the same purpose.

The letters are being sold through Gary Zimet's Moments in Time. (ANI)
