As the bizarre details continue to emerge surrounding Ariel Castro’s alleged kidnapping of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, a new revelation is captivating attention: A letter that was purportedly written by the suspect in 2004 and discovered by police in his home. In it, Castro reportedly confessed his crimes and expressed a desire to kill himself and give his savings to the victims he purportedly held against their will for nearly a decade.

The Daily Mail notes that the letter was apparently given by police to WOIO-TV reporter Scott Taylor. The journalist subsequently shared lines from the purported “confession” on his Twitter feed. Among the sentiments present in the letter, Taylor claims that Castro wrote, “I am a sexual predator. I need help.”

Additionally, he purportedly admitted that Berry, DeJesus and Knight were in his custody “against their will because they made a mistake of getting in a car with a total stranger.” Castro is said to have also expressed surprise at himself over the fact that he inevitably looked for a third victim when he already had two in his custody.

Here are the tweets that provide Taylor’s transcriptions and various portions of the suspect’s alleged letter:
