I have been searching for Final Truth The Autobiography of a Serial Killer written by Donald “Pee Wee” Gaskins and Wilton Earle for a very long time. It’s an expensive book to purchase, and it’s hard to find in any stores or the public library. Pee Wee is the most notorious serial killer in South Carolina history, and I find it fascinating to get a look into his brain through this book.
Recently, another attorney overheard me talking about how I really want to read it. Last week after being out of town for work, I got back to my office to find a copy of the book on my desk for me to borrow it and read! This was such a simple gesture, but it meant so much to me and while it’s not your normal Christmas read, I am sure enjoying reading it curled up by my Christmas tree.
It is certainly not a book for younger readers. It’s crass and brutally honest. Pee Wee doesn’t ask for forgiveness through this book and he doesn’t want it. He simply tells his story in a very chilling, matter of fact way.
The lesson I learned from this attorney’s kindness to me, is that if you have the ability to do something for someone, then do it! You never know what it might mean to them. I seriously doubt Pee Wee ever imagined this would be an outcome from his book, which kind of makes me laugh.
I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday season!
