This is the Love Letter that Marty sent to Marilyn and has been used for many years as proof of his confession to the murders:
First off, you know that I haven't tried to hurt you with my letters. I'm writing this after our phone call Monday (4-27). Marilyn, there's two things I want you to know; the first is that I love you & I don't care what has happened. Now is the time to start over. Call now!
You don't know how much I suffered before I met you. I asked God to send me someone who would care for me. I thought he sent you. I remember the hour, the words that were said; I said your ph number a thousand times that night.
I've given you my heart. All of it! Please try & think back. What do you think I've paid for you.
For three years I've heard about your kids; Don't get me wrong I love them too! Now I'll ask! What about mine? Don't you think I love them? Honey I gave up four of the most precious things in my life; for what? For you! The answer is simple!
Now I'll ask you. Why should I love your kids more than mine. I've tried! That's more than you can say. I don't think you ever loved me much less my kids and yet you expect this from me & I've given it to you. I've paid the price of your love & now that I have bought it with four people lives, you tell me we are through. Great! What else do you want?
I've paid the price! I've given my flesh & blood for you. I'll gladly pay your bills. Just send them in! You know that I love you more than my own kids. Can you say that? I know you have given up a lot to be with me. But I don't think you know what I've paid. Yes, I'm jealous! For the price I've paid I should be. You can't seem to understand how bad you have hurt me. I'm crawling back! Take me! I've paid for your love. Please give it back at least once. If you don't, you know you've stolen my heart and given it to the street.
I love you. Think about what I've given up for you,
Please don't wait till it's too late! I've given it all! What else do you want!
This letter was posted on Josh's forum in 2011 so it had been public info for years before and after Mike got the case. Sue, Johnny, Dana, and Tina were not “4” of the most precious things in his life” and certainly were not “his flesh and blood”. If Marty Smartt had just murdered 4 people this letter definitely isn’t proof of anything but his love for Marilyn and his "4" children which he had given up to be with her. Bottom line: This is a "Love Letter" and it's completely insulting to think anyone would ask us to believe otherwise.
If there is any evidence - beyond Marilyn and the Meeks speculation - to prove that Marty was the killer he would have been arrested in 1981 or at least when Mike took over the case- there was not and has not been for 40 years. If there is any evidence in these "new" files then produce it - if not then admit it and move on. Josh relied too much on the Meeks speculation for what happened in 28 which was, along with trying to please Sheila, the worst thing he could have ever done.
