Last oral statement:
“No sir, I just want to pray a chant; do what you have to do.”

— Timothy Lane Gribble, convicted of rape and murder, lethal injection, Texas.
Executed March 15, 2000

Gribble, a roofer with a history of mental illness and drug abuse, confessed to the 1987 rape and murder of NASA employee Elizabeth Jones. He was also charged but never tried for killing Donna Weis. Although Gribble did not take issue with his own death sentence, he spoke out against the death penalty itself.
