John Floyd Thomas preconviction letter envelope set


John Floyd Thomas, Jr. (born July 26, 1936) is an American serial killer, serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole convicted of the murders of seven women in the Los Angeles area during the 1970s and 1980s, and suspected by police of 10 to 15 more.

Thomas was arrested on March 31, 2009, and on April 2, 2009 he was charged with the murders of Ethel Sokoloff in November 1972 and Elizabeth McKeown in February 1976. On September 23, 2009, he was charged with the murders of Cora Perry in September 1975; Maybelle Hudson in April 1976; Miriam McKinley in June 1976; Evalyn Bunner in October 1976; and Adrian Askew in June 1986.

A break in solving the related murders came in October 2008 when Thomas, then an insurance claims adjuster, provided a DNA sample to authorities as part of an effort to assemble an offender database in the state of California. He was held without bail at the LA County Jail.

On April 1, 2011, Thomas pleaded guilty to the seven counts of murder as part of a deal to avoid the death sentence for the Adrian Askew murder. He was therefore sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. Floyd is serving his sentence in Corcoran State Prison.

The letter and envelope are both handwritten. The letter was written while Thomas was awaiting trial in Jail. The letter is signed, John.
