Suspect In Girlfriend, Professor’s Murders Left Note: “I Am So Sorry”

The university instructor accused of killing his girlfriend and a colleague called police telling them he killed the woman at the home they shared in Mississippi, where investigators found a note of apology, police said today. Police in Gautier said they found a note reading: “I am so sorry I wish I could take it back. I loved Amy and she is the only person who ever loved me.” Shannon Lamb did not indicate a motive for the killing of Amy Prentiss, 41, nor did he suggest he planned to hurt anyone else. After Lamb told them he killed Prentiss, he killed professor Ethan Schmidt, 39, inside his office at Delta State University, police said. Police have not released a motive for either shooting. University President William LaForge said he didn’t know of any conflict between Lamb and Schmidt but “obviously there was something in Mr. Lamb’s mind.” Read more on Newser…
