    Wasn't sure where to put this, but thought it was interesting.

    "This is going to be my jernal [sic] of my life for my family so they know what I was thinking and feling [sic] because I want them to know what was going thru my thots [sic]."

    Spelling and grammar errors weren’t the only things contained in this jailhouse diary kept by Jim Holden. The 25-year-old murder defendant confesses to multiple murders, claims his tattoo talks to him and keeps a list of who he plans to torture and kill next. Holden’s defense lawyer says the journal is not to be believed, and that an inmate instructed his client to fabricate the diary to lay the groundwork for an insanity plea. But are his graphic and gruesome accounts to be believed, or are they the product of a con artist’s imagination?

    I googled the case and saw a pdf file that he (Holden) filled an appeal in 2014 citing ineffective counsel (for not having been advised of a plea deal). Unfortunately, I can't seem to paste it here.
