Recently the Florida Times-Union of Jacksonville, Florida obtained a jailhouse letter written by David Sparre. As you may know, Sparre was convicted in the brutal stabbing murder of 21-year-old Tiara Pool. Sparre met Pool through a personal ad on craigslist. Now it turns out that Ms. Pool was just a victim of convenience.
In the letter that Sparre sent to his ex-girlfriend, he claims that he planned the murder at least a week in advance. He also bragged about how he thought he was smarter than the police and thought he could outsmart them because he was good with cleaning up crime scenes. He also claims he had the perfect alibi in taking his grandmother to the hospital.
What shocked even me was how callously he talks about murders and not just the murder of Tiara Pool. Sparre claims that he had shot and killed someone else prior to Tiara’s murder but said he wanted to experience stabbing someone. He then goes into detail about how he killed her and not only how much he enjoyed it but how he had hoped to do it again.
What does explain some things is that in the letter Sparre claims to be a member of the infamous Crips gang. He said his first alleged murder was his initiation into the gang. Towards the end of his letter, he also talks about his Crip brothers. Whether he has an actual gang affiliation or is just a gangsta wannabe remains to be seen however either scenario would explain why someone facing the death penalty would get the teardrop tattoos and the idiotic shaved eyebrows before his trial. ‘
Also in one of my previous posts about Sparre, several of his family members claimed he was framed and tried blaming the victim since she was a married mother of one. I’d love to hear what they have to say now about their family member since he said that “After she quit fighting, I tilted her head back and sliced her throat. I’m not even going to lie. I enjoyed it and I hope to do it again.”
The letter itself can be read courtesy of the Florida Times-Union.
