I'm interested on the Lee Boyd Malvo case. I've been reading a lot of interesting information about him. Now I want to know more about his childhood, is there a website or maybe a book I can get to read more about it?

Malvo was born in Kingston, Jamaica, to Una James, a seamstress, and Leslie Samuel Malvo, a mason. His parents were never married, and their relationship ended while Lee was an infant. His father rarely saw him after that, and his mother was often traveling to look for work. Lee was usually placed in the care of friends and relatives.
Lee appears to have attended high school under the name Lee Malvo in Jamaica before he and his mother emigrated to Antigua in 1998. His father said that this was when he last saw his son.
Lee Boyd Malvo along with John Allen Muhammad, was arrested on October 24, 2002 in connection with the Beltway sniper attacks. A jury convicted Malvo of capital murder on December 18, 2003, and recommended a sentence of life imprisonment without parole on December 23, 2003, which a judge formally agreed with on March 10, 2004. He has since plead guilty to another murder, and is facing additional charges in several states. He was held at Red Onion State Prison, located in Wise County, one of Virginia's two supermax prisons, prior to his extradition to Maryland in May, 2005.
