“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.
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.
