“There is no man that is free from all evil, nor any man that is so evil to be worth nothing.”

— David Castillo, convicted of murder, lethal injection, Texas.
Executed August 23, 1998

Castillo, an Illinoisan, served time in prison for aggravated robbery and was released on a bench warrant before being convicted for stabbing a liquor store cashier, fifty-nine-year-old Clarencio Champion, during a robbery. After Castillo demanded cash, the clerk resisted, and Castillo stabbed him in the chest and abdomen and slashed him across the face. The victim died a week later.
