In Deviant Art, an online community that encourages self expression, Kevin Sweat created another identity. Under the alias, Josepi Morgan, Sweat posted picture of himself showing off handguns and violent artwork.

In November 2008, Sweat wrote "wow, a lot of s*** has happened since the last time I came on here. I won't go into much detail for now."

Sweat also mentioned serving in the Navy and having "a secret for everyone."

The entry is dated six months after the June 8, 2008 murders of 13-year-old Taylor Placker and 11-year-old Skyla Whitacker in Weleetka. Two years passed and the Weleetka murders remain unsolved.

In May 2010, Sweat blogged again in an entry titled "So Much to Say." Sweat wrote about getting out of the military and getting engaged.

The family of Ashley Taylor told News 9 their daughter dated Sweat for three years during the time of the posts. Sweat blogged about the engagement being "the biggest mistake" of his life, and wrote "wish I knew she was a complete basket case (medicated and suicidal) before I got with her."

A little more than a year later, Ashley Taylor was murdered on July 17, 2011. Sweat admitted to cutting her throat and is charged with the murder. Taylor's family spoke out telling investigators that Sweat is also behind the Weleetka Murders.

In a post three months before Taylor's death, Sweat made another entry titled "three months to go."

He blogged about leaving the state, changing his name, and said "I'm not gonna lie, I f***** up a lot over the years, but how many people do you know is willing to admit it."

Also, in April 2011, three years after the Weleetka Murders and three months before Ashley Taylor's murder, Sweat interviewed with media about his nephew's murder, saying "it's bad enough that a lot of things go unsolved. I just don't want this to be similar scenario."

News 9 also discovered Sweat's profile on dating sites where he described himself as having little self control.
