Carl Blue


Last Statement:

Hey mom and pop. I love ya’ll, all of you people in there. You know, ya’ll have to come together, you too Terrella. Ya’ll work on that. We all have to stand before God at the end of the day. Don’t ever think you’re perfect, none of us are perfect. God is the only one that is perfect. Jesus is perfect. I did wrong, now I am paying the ultimate price, even though it’s a crooked way. I don’t hate ya’ll. Don’t judge, I’m not judging. God has to judge those people. I forgive. Always remember, Romans 12:19 is for real, hell is for real. If ya’ll don’t have your life right, get it right. We all have to die to get to heaven. Get your life right with Christ; it’s coming to an end. I’m talking to each and every soul in this building, in this room. I don’t hate nobody, you’re doing what you think is your job. God’s law is above this law.

Hang on. Cowboy up, I’m fixing to ride. Jesus is my ride. Tell my babies daddy will look down on them. Put a “C” in his name for Carl. Tell my boys and tell Tracy to keep on keeping on. Love one another, go to church, change your life for Christ, live your life for Christ. All right, Warden. Terella, I feel it babe, love.

“I would like to apologize to the families of Laci Hill, Forest Boyd and Ray Patterson for the pain I’ve caused them. I don’t deserve it. But as God has forgiven me, I hope you will forgive me for the pain I’ve caused. I would like to thank my family and friends for their love and support. When my body is gone, my spirit will be with them. Jesus Christ died for my sins. God has forgiven me. An eternity in heaven is mine.”



Rickey Lewis


Last Statement:

Ms. Connie Hilton, I’m sorry for what happened to you. If I hadn’t raped you, then you wouldn’t have lived. If you look at the transcripts, I didn’t kill Mr. Newman and I didn’t rob your house. There are two people still alive. I was just there. When I saw you in the truck driving away, I could have killed you but I didn’t. I’m not a killer. My momma was abused. I’m sorry for what you’ve gone through. It wasn’t me that harmed and stole all of your stuff. If you look at the transcripts you will see. I ask the good Lord to forgive me.

I love ya’ll; Sheena, my sister, momma, and daddy. Ya’ll pray for me, keep up the fight. Get the transcripts, let the truth come out so that I do not die in vain. I thank the Lord for the man I am today. I have done all I can to better myself, to learn to read and write. Take me to my King. I love ya’ll and thank you for the love you gave me. I respect all of ya’ll. Ms. Hilton. Ok. Let me rest. It’s burning.

To my loved ones and dear friends, I love ya’ll and appreciate ya’ll for being there. I am going to a better place. To all the guys back on the row, keep your heads up, keep up the fight. I am ready. Let’s go.



Richard Cobb


Last Statement:

Life is death, death is life. I hope that someday this absurdity that humanity has come to will come to and an end. Life is too short. I hope that anyone that has negative energy towards me will resolve that. Life is too short to harbor feelings of hatred and anger. That’s it.

Steve Smith declined to say any last words,



Carroll Parr

Last Statement:

First of all; Shonna talk to your brother. He’ll tell you the truth about what happened to your husband. I told Bubba to tell you what happened. Now, my statement to the world: I am in the midst of truth. I am good, I am straight, don’t trip. To all my partners, tell them I said like Arnold Schwarzenegger, “I’ll be back.” These eyes will close, but they will be opened again, my understanding of God is, Jesus has got me through. To my family, I love ya’ll



Jeffery Williams


Last Statement:

You clown police. You gonna stop with all that killing all these kids. You’re gonna stop killing innocent kids, murdering young kids. When I kill one or pop one, ya’ll want to kill me. God has a plan for everything. You hear? I love everyone that loves me. I ain’t got no love for anyone that don’t love me.



Elmer Carroll


Carroll did not make a final statement,



Elroy Chester


Last Statement:

I just want to say I don’t want you to have hate in your heart for me, because I took your loved one. I know it doesn’t mean anything; I told the truth because I feel like you should know who killed your loved one. God watches everything. Don’t hate me, if you do, you’ll have to deal with Him later. For me, live your life but don’t hate me. I’m sorry for taking your loved one.

Ms. Suzy, Susan, thank you for fighting for me in the courts. Thank you for supporting me for all these years. Elroy Chester wasn’t a bad man, I knew me. A lot of pople say I didn’t commit those murders, I really did it.

That’s my statement. Warden, you can go ahead.



William Van Poyck

58 u can read the story of william, the sister of william wrote it. On June 12, 2013 at 7:13pm my brother, William, took his last breath on this earth and began his journey to the other side. His last words were, “Set me Free!” and his soul is indeed free now to continue his work helping others.



  1. Goid riddance! The ONLY sympathy I have is for the victims and their families! By the way…what last words to the families did the victims get? What was the victims choice for their last meal?
