“I just want to tell my family I love them, and I thank the Lord Jesus for giving me another chance and for saving me.”

— Anthony Cook, convicted of kidnapping and murder, lethal injection, Texas
Executed November 10, 1993

Upon Cook’s arrest, he wore the watch and carried the wallet of law student David Dirck VanTassel, the man Cook and an associate kidnapped and who Cook shot four times in the head.  After his conviction, he later refused the opportunity for his lawyers to seek an appeal for his death sentence.  Born in Louisiana, Cook claimed to have found Christ and was prepared to die.
