The youngest D.C. sniper, Lee Boyd Malvo, said in a Thursday interview that he was being s*xually abused by his adult accomplice, John Allen Muhammad, when he participated in the shootings that paralyzed the Washington D.C. area 10 years ago.
“For the entire period when I was almost 15 until I got arrested, I was s*xually abused by John Muhammad,” Malvo said in the interview.
According to Malvo, his abuse actually began at age 5 when he was abused by a babysitter, then he was abused by relatives at the age of 8 or 9.
With regard to whether he knew what he was doing was wrong, Malvo said he knew the killings were wrong, but didn’t have the “willpower” to stop them.
Malvo also said that there were other victims of the shooting spree, and that he has contacted some of the family members of those victims.
“Without anyone contacting me two and a half years ago, I reached out and I did that,” Malvo told NBC’s Matt Lauer. “In five different instances in different states. But there was a point in time where psychologically, I couldn’t handle it.”
When asked what he wanted to say to the victims of his crime, Malvo said, ”please do not allow my actions and the actions of Muhammad to hold you hostage.”
Malvo’s accomplice was executed in 2009. Although Malvo has also done a previous interview with the Washington Post, he said that this interview will be his last. He is done talking about the shooting spree.
