Hanged for murder in the yard of the Jefferson County jail, in Birmingham, Alabama, on June 25, 1915, Syd Jones left a note in his cell confessing to thirteen separate homicides. 

Eleven of his victims were reportedly black men; the two whites were described as a Nebraska deputy sheriff and a brakeman on the Mobile & Ohio railroad. The letter ended on a wistful note. "I'm sorry I missed Richard Moore Sept. 12, 1912," Jones wrote. "Just one more would have made an even number."
