(Cleveland) — A sex offender who pleaded guilty to killing two women more than 15 years ago and raping children is opening up to members of an elite FBI unit that studies serial killers and rapists.
Elias Acevedo Sr. agreed to spend the rest of his life in prison for the crimes. But The Plain Dealer reports he's also fulfilling a promise to assist behavioral analysts who work with the National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime.
It wasn't part of Acevedo's plea agreement, but his attorney Bret Jordan said the interviews were his client's idea. Jordan says Acevedo "truly, truly feels horrible about what he did but he doesn't understand why it happened."
The FBI declined to comment on the arrangement.
