Hello Charlie : Letters from a Serial Killer
by Charlie Hess
In this chilling account, retired FBI agent Hess details his years of correspondence with serial killer Robert Browne as he tried to coax out details of Browne's alleged 49 murders. Sentenced to life without parole in 1995 for the first-degree murder of 13-year-old Heather Church in Colorado, Browne began taunting investigators in 2000 with vague hints of other victims. Hess - a former FBI and CIA agent with years of experience as a polygraph analyst - had volunteered to investigate cold cases in Colorado Springs; assisted by homicide detective Lou Smit and former newspaper publisher Scott Fischer, Hess began writing to Browne in the hopes of uncovering clues to as many as 48 unsolved murders. The men traded letters for years, each one bringing Hess and his team one step closer to proving the murderer's grisly claim.
