Open letter to Missy Witt’s killer

The makers of a new documentary, “Who Killed Missy Witt?” has penned a letter in an efforts to reach out to her abductor/killer.

Here is the letter in it entirety:

An Open Letter to Melissa Witt’s Killer:

We are still searching for you.

We know that you are most likely still in this community and you are someone’s friend, sibling, cousin, co-worker, spouse, parent, or neighbor.

On the outside, you might appear to be normal — even friendly and kind. But on the inside … that’s a different story … because in your heart you carry murder. You carry horror of the crime you committed against an innocent young woman.

I often wondered if Melissa Witt was the first person you murdered? Or had you killed before? Have you killed since?

The details of the crime make it clear that you have ties to the area in which Melissa’s body was discovered.

You knew that area well so you are most likely a hunter. My guess is that you are also someone with poor relationship skills. Most likely a loner. I bet you have anger issues. You might even abuse people and animals.

I often wonder if Melissa rejected your advances. Did that rejection make you feel humiliated and angry? I bet you must have been embarrassed that a beautiful, vibrant, 19-year-old girl wanted nothing to do with your pathetic self.

Sometimes I think that maybe, just maybe, you might even live near the location where you left Melissa’s lifeless body to later be discovered by trappers. Is that why you chose that location? Was it somewhere you had visited before?

Do you ever worry that people close to you secretly suspect you of Melissa’s murder? Do you wonder if they have noticed your suspicious behaviors and whisper behind your back the horrors they think you capable of committing?

You know what I think? I believe they DO suspect you and I believe they will come forward.

It is my hope that if anyone who knows you and suspects you of Melissa’s murder is reading this – I hope they find the courage to come forward and tell us who you are and what you have done.

In fact, we have an anonymous tip line set up for this very purpose: (479) 221-9393.

I hope that thought scares you.

I hope our that our Facebook page ( scares you. We’ve had 2.6 million people visit this page. You won’t be able to hide forever.

Law enforcement will find you. I promise.

I look forward to the day that your secrets are revealed. I look forward to when you are arrested and convicted for what you have done.

May justice come quickly,
LaDonna Humphrey
