After murdering his last victim, Griffin mailed several items to local media outlets. This included a home video showing him undressing and showering while a woman screams in the background and letters sent from prison that taunted police. In one letter, he wrote: At first I wanted to kill women with big tits because most men like them . . . but then I thought about how much more attention I would get if I killed good looking women.
