But what surprises Jones even more is that he continues to answer the letters from inmate Keith Eugene Goodman. "After six years of writing, you just don't quit," Jones said in a recent telephone interview from Pittsburgh. "I felt a kind of responsibility, it's a responsibility you get after writing to someone for so long."

"I see myself as very lucky because the police told me I was their next victim."
