“O my God, I am sorry for having offended thee.”

— Willie Green, convicted of murder, electric chair, Illinois.
Executed December 11, 1931

The Chicago Daily Tribune recorded little about Green, age thirtyone, who faced the electric chair for killing grocer Max Newman. He was executed the same day as three other convicted murderers at the Southern Illinois Penitentiary in Menard. He delivered his last words while shaking hands with a priest.
