Criminal Diaries: Caught on Paper
Jim Holden
Jim Holden
An inmate tipped off authorities about the jailhouse diary of Jim Holden, who stood trial in Las Vegas for the murder of 19-year-old Michael Panek. In the bizarre 31-page journal, the 25-year-old forklift operator claimed to be a hit man and bragged that Panek's shooting death was a murder-for-hire, not self-defense, as his attorney claimed. Holden was found guilty of murder on August 10, 2005, and faces life in prison without parole.
