Rudy Ramos Esquivel #606; June 9, 1986

Goodbye to all my friends; be cool. Thank you for being my friends. Give my love to everybody.


No official offender information available, but click here for a newspaper article from the time, behind the NYT paywall. Esquivel was the first non-white prisoner executed after the Supreme Court ruled that jurors could not be excluded solely based on race, though that decision was not applied retroactively in this case.
