Convicted killer, Gary Michael Hilton, told Georgia Bureau of Investigation
agents that he's a loner detached from almost everything.
Hilton currently is serving a life sentence for murdering hiker Meredith
Emerson in early January. He told investigators, " I'm a sociopath man. I'm what they call an anti-social. "You could take me to the front door of this jail and say go forth and sin no
more. I would literally have to turn back around and walk back in here" .
In the interrogation tapes just released by investigators, Hilton refers to his behavior as a rampage and appears to admit he's killed more than once.
"If you're already caught there's no use in killing them. I didn't kill them
because, for any satisfaction," said Hilton.
Authorities named Hilton as a suspect in the murder of John and Irene Bryant from Henderson County. They were found dead after going hiking in October. Hilton is also accused of killing a Florida woman in December. She was found in the Apalachicola National Forest. Hilton references this in the interrogation. "You can go down to Apalachicola Forest for that matter (laughs)," said Hilton.
Agents also asked him about his whereabouts but Hilton quickly caught on to what they were trying to find out. Hilton told them, "Oh, I know what you're getting at the unsolved murders."
In one instance Hilton showed fear when officers presumably referred to the Bryant case that is in the hands of federal prosecutors. Hilton appears in the background of a photo the night before the Emerson kidnapping. The yellow jacket with the reflective tape appears to match the one in the photos from an ATM where the Bryant's card was used.
"I'm telling you right now, I'm going to dig my heels in. I don't want federal
custody. They're going to send me to super max I know they are", said Hilton. He called himself a hunter and a professional and built up a rapport with Georgia Bureau of Investigation Agents. But he will not tell them how many people he has killed. "I promised you cooperation that night, I gave it to you. The only question I
didn't answer was on the advice of my attorney and I would have answered that,"
