Alleged Coed Slayer May Have Been a Blogger

In the 5/13 Knoxville News Sentinel:

Clues sought on Web site: 'Life' essay, photos posted by slaying suspect on Internet

"When Aaron Lee Skeen allegedly decided to post an essay online during the past year, he decided to title it "Why I Hate My Life."

Skeen, 20, is accused of kidnapping, raping and murdering University of Tennessee student Sandy Jeffers, 25, last week.

According to Blount County Sheriff James Berrong, authorities are looking at the Web site as part of their investigation with the Maryville Police Department into Jeffers' death."
The article doesn't give his website address, or even its name, but I tried every Google combination I could think of and came up with nothing. Since many bloggers don't use their real names, there wasn't much use concentrating on that anyway.

Still, it's interesting, and food for thought - what you type today can always come back to haunt you in the future. Hopefully nobody who reads my blog, or whose blog I read will commit homicide, but remember when you're commenting that if their site comes under investigation you could be contacted.

Now, since nobody has anything to worry about from me - comment away!

UPDATE: Ok, the lousy skunk SayUncle found the pages. Their just personal websites, not blogs, but you can look in the comments to see the links. Scary stuff, and once again begs the question - did nobody that knew this guy recognize what he was?
