Susan Leigh Vaughan Smith (born September 26, 1971) is an American convict who was sentenced to life in prison for murder. Born in Union, South Carolina, she is a former student of the University of South Carolina Union. On July 22, 1995, she was convicted of the drowning deaths of her two sons, three-year-old Michael Daniel Smith and 14-month-old Alexander Tyler Smith.

The case gained international attention shortly after it developed because of Smith's false claim that an African American man had carjacked her maroon Mazda Protegé and kidnapped her sons. Her defense attorneys, David Bruck and Judy Clarke, called expert witnesses to testify that she suffered from mental health issues that impaired her judgment when she committed the crimes.

According to the South Carolina Department of Corrections, Smith will be eligible for parole on November 4, 2024 after serving a minimum of 30 years. She is incarcerated at South Carolina's Leath Correctional Institution, near Greenwood.

The letter and envelope are both handwritten. The letter is signed, Susan.
