Serial killer Joseph Paul Franklin prepares to die – CNN.com


Bonne Terre, Missouri (CNN) — Joseph Paul Franklin is unblinking and empty as he talks about his victims.

Do you know how many people you murdered? \”I\’d rather not mention it,\” he says flatly.

By my count, it\’s 22 people. \”That\’s approximately it.\”

And those two young boys, just 13, 14 years old.

\”Yeah, I regret the fact that I shot them now,\” he replies.

Franklin has been away from the civilized world for more than 30 years, serving several life sentences behind bars.

We\’re meeting at the Eastern Reception, Diagnostic and Correctional Center in Bonne Terre, Missouri, where on Wednesday he is scheduled to die by lethal injection.
