DC Sniper Lee Boyd Malvo: 10 Years Later

It has been 10 years since John Muhammed and then juvenile Lee Boyd Malvo went on a multi-state shooting spree that killed 10 people. Muhammed was executed in 2009, and Lee Boyd Malvo, now 26, is serving life.

The Washington Post recently interviewed Malvo in prison. (Audio here.)

His killer stare seems to have softened. He speaks with animation and poise, and with an adult perspective on what he did. He claims to understand the enormity of his actions....

“I was a monster,” Malvo said. “If you look up the definition, that’s what a monster is. I was a ghoul. I was a thief. I stole people’s lives. I did someone else’s bidding just because they said so. . . . There is no rhyme or reason or sense.”
