Full Story:Even psychopaths have a soul mate.
Tracey Bottomley, 41, from West Yorkshire in the UK, is engaged to 52-year-old Ernest Otto Smith — a convicted double-murderer.
“Yes, he is a serial killer, he’s committed a few murders, but I understand the risks of what could happen and I still love him,” says Bottomley, who exchanges emails with her hubby-to-be three times a day. “But everybody dies one day. I’m going to die eventually and I don’t mind the fact it could be at the hands of him.”
In one of his letters, Otto Smith wrote, “Girl do you know how happy you make me? Where have you been all my life? I’m falling in love with you girl, I feel like you were meant to find me.”
Otto Smith was sentenced to life at the Ohio State Penitentiary without parole in 2006 for the murders of a man and woman, and also spent 32 years in solitary confinement. The pair, who began corresponding via prison pen-pal program, met and fell in love in 2018. She says their parallel experiences with trauma and abuse have brought them closer.
