“I want to thank you, gentlemen. I go to die, but I am innocent. That is all I can say. I wish you good luck—all of you—all your life.”

— Samuel Feraci, convicted of murder, electric chair, New York.
Executed August 9, 1934

Samuel Feraci was one of Anna Antonio’s two accomplices in murder and attempted insurance fraud. The trio attacked, shot, and stabbed her husband on Easter Sunday. Antonio promised Feraci eight hundred of the expected five-thousand-dollar settlement. Instead, he followed her to the electric chair.
