“Everybody has to die sometime, so . . . let’s get on with the killing.”

— Kevin Conner, convicted of murder, lethal injection, Indiana.
Executed July 27, 2005

Dubbed “Iceman” because of his cold demeanor, Connor requested that his friends sell souvenir T-shirts emblazoned with an ice block and a knife. He spent eighteen years on death row for an alcohol-fueled triple murder of friends, and he ultimately asked not to be reprieved. To Indiana governor Mitch Daniels he wrote: “Killing a person is far more honest and humane than imposed repression under the guise of justice in the penal system.”
