Danny Hembree Letter
January 26, 2012 by staff
Danny Hembree Letter, A convicted murderer on death row in North Carolina wrote a taunting letter to his hometown newspaper about his life of “leisure” in prison and making a mockery of the legal system.
Danny Robbie Hembree Jr. was found guilty of murdering 17-year-old Heather Catterton in 2009 and was sentenced to death on Nov. 18, 2011.
Hembree, 50, is on death row at Central Prison in Raleigh, N.C., but he’s not looking for any pity in the letter he sent to The Gaston Gazette.
“Is the public aware that I am a gentleman of leisure, watching color TV in the A.C., reading, taking naps at will, eating three well balanced hot meals a day,” Hembree asked in the letter. “I’m housed in a building that connects to the new 55 million dollar hospital with round the clock free medical care 24/7.”
He also asks if the public knows that the chances of his “lawful murder” taking place in the next 20 years, if ever, are “very slim.”
Gaston County District Attorney Locke Bell said that he has received two distraught phone calls from Catterton’s father today.
