“When the Browns are in the Super Bowl in the next five years, you’ll know I’m up there doing my magic. . . . I know I flipped some worlds upside down.

Maybe they will follow the Europeans. God is the only one who knows.”

— James Filiaggi, convicted of murder, lethal injection, Ohio.
Executed April 24, 2007

In a wide-ranging final statement, Filiaggi touched on subjects including his love for his daughters, football’s Cleveland Browns, and capital punishment. Filiaggi faced lethal injection for the murder of his ex-wife, Lisa, after a long history of domestic violence and intimidation.
