"He knows what happened to Zahra and yet I'm the one in here at least for now," Baker writes in the letters that also have spiders drawn on them and phrases like "Vamps Rule!" and "Be part of the freak show!"
The owners of a website, Serialkillersink.net, say they reached out to Elisa Baker and started writing to her. The site has interviews and letters from some of the country's most notorious serial killers.
One of the owners, Jessika Gein, told WBTV by phone Tuesday night her husband used a pen name when he wrote to Baker. "We don't doubt the authenticity of it," said Gein regarding the letters.
But some of what Baker allegedly writes is disturbing when she talks about what happened to the little girl who's been missing for nearly a month. She again blames her husband, Adam, writing,"we really didn't kill her but what he did after the fact is kinda horrifying." She goes on to say that she is afraid of her husband.
In another letter she writes, "Zahra isn't missing. The cops know where she is and what he has done. That's right what he has done."
The letters stop short of saying where Zahra is or what happened to her.
When Gein was asked how they know the letters are authentic she said, "if we write to that person and we get something back and it's stamped by the prison or the jail, the envelope, then we pretty much know it's legit."
Gein went on to say the police know about the letters.
"They said that they have copies of all the letters that are coming and outgoing and that they know they're legit letters," she said. "So they don't doubt it and neither do we."
Police told WBTV it's possible the letters are real, but that they don't have them.
Today, we shared the alleged words of Elisa Baker with two handwriting experts.
Thomas Thornburg says her writing shows the words of a very troubled person.
He said, "She's living in darkness. She calls it a friend, and she can't stay there, she has to surface."
Thomas Grogran runs a Charlotte company called the Forensic Document Laboratory.
According to Grogan, "She's very much into the moment. She's not one to think ahead or regard the consequences of her actions."
WBTV contacted Elisa Baker's attorneys but they have not returned our calls.
