Transcript of Pedro Alonso Lopez
"I lost my innocence at age eight, so I decided to do the same to as many young girls as I could."
"There is a wonderful moment, a divine moment when I have my hands around a young girl's throat."
"Someday, when I am released. I will feel that moment again. I will be happy to kill again. It is my mission."
Pedro Alonso Lopez
