The young man who's serving a double life sentence for killing Derek and Nancy Haysom a decade ago has published his life story on the Internet.
(----------------)
VO-NAT


"Mortal Thoughts," by Jens Soering is to be the springboard for a new appeal of his murder conviction.
The 12- chapter autobiography tells of Soering's infatuation with Elizabeth Haysom and offers what he calls a "blow-by-blow description" of the trial and everything that led up to it.
SUPER=03-Bedford/June, 1990


Haysom testified that Soering got carried away- -acting out an idle fantasy of hers- -wishing her parents were dead.

He says Rick Neaton admits he was under a "mental disability" at the time of the trial and that the Detroit lawyer has since "lost his license."
The Michigan State Bar and the Attorney Discipline Board confirm that Neaton was suspended from practicing law two years ago for misappropriation of funds, misrepresentation and neglect of a client.
A second disciplinary action against Neaton is still pending in Michigan.
