Excerpts of 1999 letter to Summit County Prosecutor’s Office
- April 1998 Lilius Landrum murder
“What Tony Smith has taken from us can never be replaced. We will never forget the horrifying way he took Lilius from us.
“Our family embraced Tony with love and kindness. This is how he repaid us.”
“... I fear that if Tony Smith was ever released, he could repeat this horrifying act.”
