ATMORE, Ala. -- Murderer Thomas Warren Whisenhant's long stay on Alabama's death row ended peacefully this afternoon, in stark contrast to the horrific violence he inflicted on his victims.
Whisenhant, 63, said nothing before he was injected with the cocktail of drugs that sapped the life from his body. A doctor pronounced him dead at 6:20 p.m.
The Prichard native died three days short of his 32nd anniversary on death row at Holman prison, where he was the longest-serving inmate on death row. He became the 241st prisoner executed in Alabama, and the first since Max Landon Payne was put to death in October. Al.com
In stark contrast to the horrific violence he inflicted on his victims. He got off easy. Murderers are first rate cowards of the lowest level.
