Jail officials say accused child killer Thomas Ferguson left a suicide note. 

Ferguson was locked up for the murder of his girlfriend’s son, 13-year-old Jeremiah Valencia. 

Prosecutors say he beat the boy to death and buried his body off a highway near Nambe. 

Jail officials found a note from Ferguson after he hanged himself in his Santa Fe County jail cell Friday night. 

They say he wrote that he did not kill Jeremiah. 

In other parts of the letter, they say he wrote about his disgust for law enforcement and left goodbyes for family.
