Odd, confessional affidavit from Duncan

It reads in some ways like a confession before going to his execution, but it offers no insight into the killer’s crimes. Instead, the eight-page affidavit that condemned killer Joseph Duncan filed in federal court late today deals mostly with the killer’s religious views of his crimes and his impending execution, including a religious awakening that he claims caused him to spare his only surviving child victim. You can read the affidavit here and click below for more. Or if you’d rather not, don’t. Certainly, Joseph Duncan is not Thanksgiving fare. Yet one piece of his story is: The fact that he’ll never again be free to hurt another child.
