Chilling interview footage shows serial killer Bobby Joe Long discussing all the women he murdered. Watch here:
Long killed 10 women and committed more than 50 rapes, spending 34 years on death row in Florida before he was executed in 2019, aged 65.
Long killed all 10 women in 1984, before his arrest, and in the interview above he claimed he didn't know why he carried out his heinous crimes.
He said: "A lotta lives just gone down the tubes because of me, you know, in one way or another.
"And it's not a good feeling, it's not a pleasant feeling. I'm not proud of anything I've done.
"And the worst thing is I don't understand why - I don't understand why."
Long had no final words before his execution by lethal injection, which 25 people watched alongside the authorities and members of the media.
One witness was Lisa Noland, formerly McVey - her story provided the basis for the film Believe Me: The Abduction of Lisa McVey.
She was kidnapped and raped by Long when she was just 17, but managed to escape, with the information she provided officers leading to his capture.
Noland went on to become deputy at the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office and said she forgave Long.
In a statement she said: "Bobby Joe Long, thank you. Thank you for choosing me instead of another 17-year-old little girl.
"The reason why I say 'thank you' now is because I have forgiven you for what you have done to me. Had I not forgiven you, I might as well be in my own prison, without walls.
"God has shown me the only way to really be free when someone bestows injustice against you is complete forgiveness. My life changed forever, and for the better. I chose not to remain a victim, I chose to live."
Her story proved too much to handle for many Netflix viewers, who couldn't believe the ordeal she was put through before, during and after her kidnapping:
Just watched 'Believe me: the abduction of Lisa McVey' on Netflix and I am sobbing. That woman went through the most unimaginable horror as a young girl, and yet saved so many lives. Now she works in the police to protect children from sex crimes. :cry:
