A stockbroker who hanged himself while under suspicion of killing his ex-girlfriend called her a ‚piece of s**t‘ and confessed ‚most of the stuff you will hear is true‘ except for child porn allegations, in his suicide notes.
John Ozbilgen, 29, killed himself November 22, less than a month after Stephanie Parze, 25, went missing in New Jersey and two days after he was released from jail on a child pornography charge.
Her mother reported her missing October 31 after she failed to show up to a babysitting job and didn’t respond to messages.
In a 911 call her mother told the dispatcher she’d contacted Ozbilgen who said he’d seen her the night before.A week later he became a person of interest and cops soon discovered abusive images of children as young as three on his computer and phone.
In two suicide notes made public by Monmouth Prosecutor’s Office on Monday after fragments were revealed last month, Ozbilgen addresses ‚Mom, Dad, Sal, Sammy‘, and another is addressed to an unnamed ex-girlfriend.
‚Sorry about all this crazyness, I’ve been miserable for so long now, I had enough …I can’t do life in prison,‘ Ozbilgen writes to his parents. ‚I dug myself in a deep hole. This is the only choice.‘
