WINNIPEG — The Winnipeg trial of admitted serial killer Jeremy Skibicki (skih-BITS’-kee) is learning about him through his own words.

The Crown has entered into evidence some pen-pal letters he wrote last year while waiting to go to trial for killing four Indigenous women.

In the letters, Skibicki laments unfair persecution faced by white people and discusses his plan to write a post-apocalyptic zombie novel.

He also talks about the high-profile nature of his case and how he is probably one of the most hated men in Winnipeg, if not Canada.

Skibicki has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the 2022 slayings.

He has acknowledged through court that he killed the women but is arguing he's not criminally responsible because of mental illness.

The Crown has painted a picture of Skibicki as a white supremacist who preyed on his victims at homeless shelters.
