The Farmville murders occurred in Farmville, Virginia in September, 2009 – the quadruple bludgeoning homicide of Mark Niederbrock, Debra S. Kelley, their daughter Emma Niederbrock and friend Melanie Wells.
Emma Niederbrock shared a relationship with Richard Samuel McCroskey, a Juggalo and troubled aspiring rapper. Together, Emma Niederbrock, McCroskey, her mother and father, along with friend Wells, attended a horrorcore concert the week before. When Wells' mother could not locate her daughter, she alerted police, who discovered the murders.
McCroskey, 20 years old, was subsequently arrested, convicted of the murders and sentenced to life in prison. He is serving his sentence at Red Onion State Prison in Pound, Virginia.
The letter and envelope are both handwritten. The letter is signed, Sam.
