‘I just enjoy killing. Simple as that.’ Quotes from airman’s journal shared at sentencing in Offutt slaying | Omaha World-Herald

“I just enjoy killing. Simple as that.”

That is how Airman 1st Class Timothy Wilsey described what he called “a hunger, a thirst, a craving” to kill people.

In the days after he strangled an acquaintance, Airman 1st Class Rhianda Dillard, Wilsey poured out his thoughts, and his murderous ambitions, in the handwritten pages of his journal.

Some of the quotes from Wilsey’s journal were displayed on a television screen Tuesday as Maj. Ryan Reed, one of the military prosecutors, gave his 75-minute closing statement in the sentencing of the 21-year-old airman. Wilsey pleaded guilty last week to charges of premeditated murder in the killing of Dillard, 20, as the two watched TV in her Offutt Air Force Base dorm room: D112, Turner Hall. He also pleaded guilty to desertion.

Reed described how Dillard — a high-achieving member of the 55th Strategic Communications Squadron — met Wilsey at a basketball game, and the two exchanged phone numbers. According to testimony, she had probably never been on a date before. Her mother in Mississippi had not allowed her to go out with boys unchaperoned.
