Haysom-Soering: Parent-killer speaks out about ex-BF
Elizabeth Haysom, sentenced to 90 years for the brutal murder and near-decapitation of her parents, has broken her silence from prison with a letter to the Associated Press that insists her former boyfriend, Jens Soering, who is trying to get paroled to Germany, is guilty.
The AP also reports Soering's attorney sent a sworn statement to the governor from Lynchburg resident Tony Buchanan, who says Haysom picked up a bloody car from his transmission shop with another man– who was not Soering–- months after Derek and Nancy Haysom were slain in 1985.
Soering, who met Haysom while both were students at UVA, has long maintained that he confessed to the crime because he believed his father's status as a diplomat would give him immunity. Former governor Tim Kaine okayed his transfer to Germany before he left office in 2010, but that was nixed by incoming Governor Bob McDonnell. Soering has been eligible for parole since 2003.
