Infamous 'Vampire Killer' speaks out from prison

Rod Ferrell currently serving life sentence

The man behind one of Central Florida's most infamous killings will speak out on Monday's episode of Crime Watch Daily on News 6. 

Rod Ferrell is currently serving a life sentence for killing a Eustis couple back in 1996. The case got national attention because Ferrell told investigators he believed he was a vampire and started a cult. 

Due to a Supreme Court ruling, however,  Ferrell could be re-sentenced and possibly set free.

"I tried to embrace the lifestyle of being a vampire, and being so young, my mind latched on it so deeply that I got lost inside of it," Ferrell said in the interview. 

Crime Watch Daily airs at 3 p.m. on News 6.
