Raymond Landry, Sr #738; December 13, 1988

Landry made no last statement, but information about his crime and execution can be found here.

Incidentally, two years ago I interviewed an AP reporter named Mike Graczyk, who has been present at more than 300 executions in Texas as a media witness. In the interview he told the remarkable, startling story of Landry's execution. This blog owes quite a bit to Mr. Graczyk, both in spirit, and for pointing me in the direction of these resources.

  1. Wow. Mr. Graczyk seems like an amazing guy. I like that he doesn't really claim to know whether or not the death penalty is a good thing...he just sees his role as a witness. And if he inspired you to do this blog, well, that can only be a good thing. :)
