Charles Duffy signed letter envelope set


Charles Lee Duffy, 31, of Norcross, pleaded guilty to kidnapping Priscilla Culberson, 48, raping and severely beating and strangling her on June 24, 1997.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Michael Johnson sentenced Duffy to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

When Culberson didn’t show up for work as usual, her relatives told police she was missing and then went out searching on their own. Hours later, the victim’s 20-year-old daughter found her mother’s nude body in a wooded lot off Campbellton Road in southwest Atlanta.

Duffy pleaded guilty last year to murdering two women in DeKalb County in 1997. Those murders and the Atlanta killing had remained cold cases for years until police got a tip on the case last year.

Culberson fought her killer, whose blood was on the victim’s clothes, investigators said.

That blood, along with semen, was tested this year and connects Duffy to the victim, District Attorney Paul Howard said last year after announcing Duffy’s indictment despite Duffy’s insistence that he was innocent.

The letter and envelope are both handwritten. The letter is signed, Charlie Jr.
