He was arrested in 1983 when he was investigated under the alias "Roger W. Downs" and he confessed to all five murders in a I-am-talking-about-what-I-ate-yesterday manner. He later professed remorse for his crimes and when the prosecutor began, "Do you want death or life?", he replied by saying, "Give me lethal injection."
