 'Rape Cards' Authored By Jailed Rapist Raking in Moolah Over the Internet

Arohn Kee has created 20 revolting "rape cards" that a Web site is selling for 19 dollars a pop.

"It's very, very disturbing," the New York Daily News quoted Gregory Washington, whose daughter Rasheeda was raped and strangled by Kee.

"This is just an added insult," he added.

Rosa Castro, whose daughter Johalis was also murdered, couldn't bear to hear the details of the online outrage.

"I don't want to reopen the wound," the mom said.

"It is very painful. I don't want to go back to the time of the murder," she added.

Each of the 5-by-7-inch cards includes an explicit description of sex attacks, and echoes the shameless taunts that Kee levelled at his real-life victims.

The Web site pulls no punches in exalting Kee's brutal credentials.

"Each Rape Card has violent sex written in his hand," the site boasts.

"Signed In Full at bottom in bloody red ink," it stated.

Kee, 35, was convicted in 2000 of carrying out a nearly decade-long rape and murder spree in his East Harlem neighbourhood. He's doing his time at Attica state prison near Buffalo.

Kee probably agreed to sell the "rape cards" and other mementos after being approached by the Web site, said Andy Kahan, a victims rights advocate in the Houston mayor's office.

Kahan led a successful nationwide fight to get eBay to ban sales of so-called "murderabilia".

But Web sites like murderauction.com and prisonboundserialkillers.com still openly sell killers' artwork, trinkets and artefacts.

"It's nauseating for the relatives of victims," Kahan said.

"It's like being gutted all over again," he added.

Prison officials vowed to immediately launch an investigation into Kee.

"We share the victims' outrage," Erik Kriss, a spokesman for the state correction department, said.

"This is something that should not be happening," he added.
