The 3X Killer's Letters:

- The note handed to Catherine after Joseph was murdered:

Joseph Mozynski

3X3-X-097

- First letter sent to police:

Kindly print this letter in your paper for Mozynski’s friends: CC-NY ADCM-Y16a DQR-PA 241 PM6 Queens. By doing this you may save their lives. We do not want any more shooting unless we have to.

- Letter sent to police after 3X killed Noel Sowley:

“V-5 Sowley was one of Mozynski’s friends, thirteen more men and one woman will go if they do not make peace with us and stop bleeding us to death.”

- Final letter to police:

“N.J. 4-3-44 returned to us the 19 at 9 p.m. My mission is ended. There is no further cause for worry."
