“I did pretty good until about five minutes ago. Now my nerves are gone.”

— Arthur Gary Bishop, convicted of murder, lethal injection, Utah.
Executed June 10, 1988

A former Eagle Scout, honor student, and Mormon missionary, Bishop was arrested for molesting and murdering five young boys over a five-year span. Bishop had lived with so much guilt for committing the crimes that after he was convicted he dismissed his lawyers to expedite his death sentence.
