Disturbing Information Released About Death Row Inmate
NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Did convicted killer Christa Pike use her "charm" to hatch a plot to bust her out of Tennessee's Death Row?
Newly released information revealed that the two men facing charges in the plot to get Pike out of jail weren't the only men interested in her during her stay on death row.
23-year-old Justin Heflin, a former correctional officer at the Tennessee Prison for Women, and 34-year old Donald Kohut, a New Jersey man, who frequently visited Pike in prison were arrested in connection with the plot to free her.
Another man, who identifies himself as Pike's former fiancé, Eric Gein, said Pike had a certain "southern charm". In an interview with Inside Edition, Gein says that he and Pike exchanged love letters while she was in prison, and some of them were disturbing.
In one letter Pike said she has "this great need to be physical with another human being. Be it good or evil ... whether "To hold a child or to slit a grown man's abdomen open and watch his guts fall to the ground".
Pike is on death row for the 1995 torture slaying of Colleen Slemmer. She also attempted to murder a fellow female inmate in 2004.
