This Week in 2009

“Bye, I’m ready.”

– Bobby Wayne Woods, convicted of murder, lethal injection, Texas. Executed December 3, 2009.

Woods broke into the home of ex-girlfriend Schwana Patterson through an open window. He attacked Patterson’s daughter, Sarah, and sexually molested her. After kidnapping both Sarah and her younger brother, Cody, he drove them to a cemetery where Cody was beaten and left unconscious. Woods then drove away with Sarah and cut her throat. His execution was delayed half an hour to wait for the U.S. Supreme Court to consider an appeal claiming Woods was mentally retarded.
