“I came in like a lion and go out like a lamb. Erin and Emma will forever and always hold the heart of the lion. To my brothers, I hope they will never have to walk these 15 steps I walked today. I have tried to bring attention to the futility and flagrantly flawed system we have today. Stop the madness.”

– Lawrence Raymond Reynolds, Jr., convicted of murder, lethal injection, Ohio. Executed March 16, 2010.

Reynolds, an alcoholic, strangled Loretta Mae Foster, leaving with her checkbook and $40 in cash to buy liquor. One month prior to the murder, Foster had hired Reynolds to paint her basement and was reportedly harassed by Reynolds, who claimed that she owed him $300 for the job rather than the $100 that she paid him.
