Younger D.C. Sniper On 27 Shootings: I Felt Like ‘The Worst Piece Of Scum’

On Sunday, convicted D.C. sniper, Lee Boyd Malvo, the younger of the two infamous D.C. snipers, was reported to have said that looking at one of his victim’s husbands made him feel like “the worst piece of scum.”

In an interview with The Washington Post, Malvo expressed remorse and went on to urge the families of the victims to make an effort to forget about him and his partner in crime, John Allen Muhammad, and move on with their lives. On Tuesday it will have been exactly 10 years since Malvo and Muhammad started their deadly shooting spree in the Washington area. The two men were connected to 27 shootings across the country, 10 of which were fatal shootings in the Washington area.

The now 27 year old man spoke to the The Washington Post and expressed how he can still remember the look on the face of one of his victims Linda Franklin’s husband, right after she was shot. Franklin was shot outside a Home Depot in Falls Church, Va while out shopping with her husband.

Talking about Ted Franklin, Malvo said,

 “It is the worst sort of pain I have ever seen in my life. His eyes … Words do not possess the depth in which to fully convey that emotion and what I felt when I saw it. … You feel like the worst piece of scum on the planet.”

Malvo is currently in prison, in southwest Virginia, serving a life sentence with no parole. In 2009, Muhammad was executed in Virginia.

Ten years ago, the sniper shootings terrorized people in the nation’s capital by shooting random people while they walked around in Washinton. The two men used a high-powered rifle to shoot at the unsuspecting people and they were later arrested at a rest stop in Maryland.

While Malvo still insisted that he was manipulated by Muhammad to do the shootings, which took place when he was only 17 years old, he still says, “I was a monster.”

Malvo has repeatedly refused to speak to the media except a 2010 interview he did for a cable TV special.

On what he would say to his victim’s families, Malvo said,

“We can never change what happened. There’s nothing that I can say except don’t allow me and my actions to continue to victimize you for the rest of your life. Don’t allow myself or Muhammad to continue to make you a victim for the rest of your life. It isn’t worth it.”
