“Well, I’d like to say thank you to my family for being here and all my friends, and Boomer Sooner.”

– Jeffery Timothy Landrigan, convicted of murder, lethal injection, Arizona. Executed October 26, 2010.

A native of Oklahoma, Landrigan murdered Chester Dyer in Arizona after escaping from an Oklahoman prison, where he was being held for a 20-year prison sentence for second-degree murder. Landrigan’s execution was temporarily stayed while the Supreme Court investigated the origins of Arizona’s supply of sodium thiopental, a barbiturate used in the state’s lethal injections. “Boomer Sooner” is the University of Oklahoma’s fight song.
