Melissa Moore, 43, has taken to TikTok to reveal the creepy letters her dad would send her from jail.

Moore is the daughter of Keith Hunter Jesperson - a Canadian-born trucker also known as the "Happy Face Killer". Between 1990 and 1995 he killed at least 8 women across the US, though when he was eventually arrested he declared that he had claimed at least 185 people's lives.

During his reign of terror, Jesperson earned himself the nickname the "Happy Face Killer" for the smiley face drawings he would doodle on letters sent to the media and police.

Now, his daughter has unveiled her own collection of her father's letters sent to her from his prison cell in Oregon.

In a TikTok video that has garnered over 8 million views, Moore revealed one particular correspondence he sent her after her wedding over the summer.

The letter contained a printed image of Moore and her husband on their wedding day. "So he's somehow able to see my Instagram from prison," she marveled in the clip.

However, the contents of the message were even creepier. "In the letter, he says I’m fat and my husband is fat," Moore explained, adding: "He then tells me maybe this marriage will work, and ends with 'why wasn't I invited?'"

Jesperson then signs off: "Remember most of all daughter, I never stopped loving you."

Elsewhere in the video, Moore revealed that her dad had also sent her a package at Christmas containing a purse his cellmate had made for her.

While Moore hasn't clarified whether she ever replies to her dad's letters, she has spoken out about the effect he had on her life growing up.

In another clip, she replied to a follower asking: "Does or did your father's infamy affect your social/personal life?"

"It was a huge secret that I wanted to remain that way," Moore said, adding: "In 1995 after my dad’s arrest, I was deeply embarrassed and ashamed."

She went on to explain how her father's infamy followed her throughout her life, forcing her to change schools as a child and making it difficult to date as a young adult.

Now she's in her forties, she said that her father isn't as much as a part of her everyday life, "but it still does affect my life in a lot of subdued ways."

As well as opening up about her experiences on TikTok, Moore also speaks about them as the host of the true-crime podcast: Happy Face Presents: Two Face.
