A letter sent from Erik Meiser to Fox 12 reporter Andrew Padula
OREGON CITY, OR (KPTV) -
A Clackamas County judge issued a gag order for the suspect accused of murdering a Lake Oswego Man.
Erik Meiser is charged with murdering Fritz Hayes in September.
Last week, he sent a letter to Fox12 saying there's another murder victim who is being overlooked.
Deputies later announced that Meiser is a person of interest in the murder of Nike Fickett, a Kelso man found dead in a campsite in July.
In court today, a judge issued a temporary order that doesn't allow Meiser to talk to the press.
The judge also asked Meiser if he would cooperate with mental health professionals, after he refused to talk to one yesterday.
"I'm actually not interested in moving forward. You might as well go ahead and send me to the mental hospital then because until I am not woken up at 5 o'clock in the morning every single morning. I don't want to cooperate," Meiser told the judge.
A doctor testified that he thinks Meiser suffers from delusions and hallucinations, which may be why Meiser is so upset with his treatment at the Clackamas County Jail.
"I'm being messed with. It happens all through the day but as soon as I begin to wake up, somebody is there to say something, some skulduggery or project some semantics into my psyche, and I'm tired of it. And everyone knows it's happening and no one cares," Meiser told the judge.
Meiser eventually agreed to meet with a state psychologist.
The results of his evaluation will be presented in a hearing on Dec. 11.
