Will You Forgive Me? Apology From Death Row. Edward Lang

I hope that this email finds you and your loved ones in good health as well as in good spirits…I would like to start this off with a sincere apology to you and your loved ones for what role I played in what led to Mernell Cheek being murdered. I regret that I was involved in anyway with what occurred that night, and I hope that you can embrace my apology within your heart and one day forgive me. I would like to say that there is a lot that went on that night that has not only been misunderstood, but has not been spoken in truth in regards to what it is that I am convicted for. Though I take full responsibility for my roles in this situation, I have from day one tried to let it be known that I did not kill Ms. Cheek or Jaron. I sit condemned for something that Antonio Walker did and blamed on me. For a long time I carried a lot of anger, bitterness, and confusion in my heart because of this. But as I stand today, I can’t be angry with any one except for myself because I took apart in what led to this happening in the first place. I never intended for anyone to be hurt, and I wish that things never happened in anyway that it did. At my sentencing I said some things to Jaron’s family that I shouldn’t have said. I felt like I was being attacked and wanted to say something back in response to being attacked because I had just received a death sentenced for two murders that I didn’t commit, but that is no excuse, just the truth in why I said what I said…I have made a lot of mistakes in my life. I have to answer to God for my many mistakes and I pray that you and your loved ones can find it in your heart to forgive me for the hurt and pain that my actions caused to you all. I have lost many people dear to me throughout my life so I am sympathetic to your lost. I am not the same man today that I was 10 years ago and as the man that I am today, I felt the need to reach out to you and your family to offer my condolences with hope that it can help you find some closure in some form or fashion. I now understand that my actions has also had a dramatic impact on my families lives as well, most importantly my daughters. Again I sincerely apologize for what role I played in this situation. God Bless you and your family.
Sincerely Edward Lang
