Police Investigating Possible Note Left By Midtown Murder Suspect
SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The Sacramento Police Department is investigating social media posts that could be from the suspect in a midtown murder.
One of those posts is on the CBS13 Facebook page. Police have confirmed to CBS13 that they are investigating the message “as though it is credible.”
The post is from a “Joe Khan” Facebook profile. It starts with the line: “I loved Kelsey and no one will ever know how much,” and continues, “I wish I never went to see her that night and I know so does everyone else.”
Police released a suspect photo of Mohammed Joseph Khan last week, naming him as the killer of 33-year-old Kelsey Snyder, who found dead in her midtown apartment on June 28. Investigators have said Khan and Snyder were in a relationship and that he was now on the run, possibly heading to Mexico.
Now with this possible lead, after CBS13 put pictures of Khan on Facebook, is this new post from Khan himself – and could it point to his location?
The post is written like a suicide note at times, with one line reading, “Every day I cry for her and try to kill myself. She made everyone’s life better. I want to turn myself in and answer any questions, but I rather try to end my life ASAP.”
Police say there are several social media posts with messages like the one posted on CBS13’s Facebook page.
The following is the full post from “Joe Khan” (posted on July 4):
I loved Kelsey and no one will ever know how much. I wish I never went to see her that night and I know so does everyone else. I was drunk and **** knows she put two pills in my mouth, I started to spit them out but Kelsey told me to take them, because she did too, everything after that was a blur. Anyone that knows me knows I´m not that person. Every day I cry for her and try to kill myself. I want to wake up from this nightmare. Everyday I’m alive I live in misery with what I did to her and everyone else. She was one of the most elegant, beautiful, unselfish, kindest, intelligent, fun, witty, best dressed, loyal, and classiest people in the world. I know 100% there is no god because why would he let this happen to such a person. This society should let the people that want to commit suicide do it in an acceptable manor. I loathe this life. I really hope today it will happen, and if you think it´s that easy you never tried to choke yourself to death. Everyone I asked to help me kill myself would not and told me to run away, I never meant to be on the run. I can´t sleep and drink until I pass out. I wish I was at her grave right now maybe that will give me courage to do it. I´m so sorry for everyone I hurt especially big B. I robbed the world of a precious person. She made everyone´s life better. I want to turn myself in and answer any questions, but I rather try to end my life ASAP.
