Texas serves justice.
HUNTSVILLE, Texas - A convicted sex offender was put to death Wednesday evening for slipping into a San Antonio apartment in the middle of the night, snatching a 7-year-old girl and raping and strangling her.
Guadalupe Esparza, 46, asked for forgiveness before Texas Department of Criminal Justice officials administered lethal drugs into his arms.
"To the family of Alyssa Vasquez, I hope you will find peace in your heart," he said. "My sympathy goes out to you. I hope you find it in your heart to forgive me. I don't know why all of this happened."
He was pronounced dead 11 minutes later, at 6:21 p.m. CST. Bellingham Herald
