"I didn't start writing to Will with the intention of falling in love, it just happened," 47-year-old Anna Curtis explained to London's Daily Mail.
She and Texas death row inmate William Speer were paired by an organization that matches criminals on death row with pen pals. Curtis explains that Speer was convicted of shooting and killing a man when he was just 16. In 1997, he was also convicted of strangling a fellow inmate.

JAIL BOY just wants her $$$$. She should have 4 other women write to him. I bet he'd say the same SH*& to all four women. These guys in jail look for lonely homely women... say sweet things and convey she has an 'inner beauty' and all sorts of BS that Miss Lonely soaks up and believes. Then JAIL BOY will ask for 3-5 dollars, and gradually ask for more and more. If Big Willy has 5-10 women on the mail hook, he's got his cigarette fund and all his jailhouse trades covered. It's a racket Anna - wake up! You are one of his many MONEY HAGS.
