COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - WINK News obtained a jailhouse phone call from the man who allegedly slit the throats of his wife and five children. Mesac Damas apparently admitted to killing his family a year ago. He spoke to his father from jail in Creole and we had it translated.
In the 15 minute call, Mesac Damas told his father that jail is a place where they put crazy people.
"Satan comes and divides your family," said Mesac Damas.
Damas was stoic throughout the entire phone call. He told his father he found religion and is reading The Bible.
"Now that I'm in prison, I have this big crime on my head," said Mesac Damas. "My wife's gone, my kids are gone."
But, the call was less of a conversation and more of a lecture from Mesac Damas to his father.
"I really don't think I have much time about two or three months to live," said Damas.
Mesac Damas went on to say he did a lot of bad things and wasted people's lives .
"I never thought I could find myself in this type of situation," said Mesac Damas.
Damas also took the time to ask about his mother and to tell his father how much he appreciated him. He also asked his dad for one last favor, to send a picture of my wife and kids.
Mesac Damas is charged with six counts of first degree premeditated murder. He faces the death penalty.
