Glenn Helzer signed finishing line kit


Justin Helzer and his brother, former stock broker Glenn Taylor Helzer, were sentenced to death in 2005 for killing five people as part of an utterly bizarre murder-extortion plot. Justin Helzer finally killed himself in April 2013.

A fishing line in prison is a way of outwitting the officers. It's called "fishing." Inmates unravel threads from their sheets to make fishing lines. They send each other notes, newspapers, drugs, razor blades and even makeshift knives.

This particular fishing line is made from thread and a toothpaste tube, and a toliet paper roll holder. Included is a double sided, handwritten letter in which Helzer talks about the fishing line, which is signed in full.
