Default Willie Shannon - Texas - RIP

Texas executed a man on Wednesday by lethal injection for the 1992 murder of a man whom he shot dead during a car hijacking outside a Houston shopping center.

In his last statement while strapped to the gurney, Shannon said he had not meant to kill Garza.
"I took a father, it wasn't my fault, it was an accident ... God knows the truth," he said.

I wonder who's fault it is, if it wasn't his? Maybe Garza for resisting?

Please remember that this is a thread to pay last respects to the men that have been executed.
Their family and friends are able to read this and out of respect for them, messages should be appropriate for the title of this forum "In Memoriam".
If any member finds it too difficult to post a supportive message, I respectfully suggest that they refrain from making any comment.
Thanks.
Rachel

May you rest in peace Mr. Shannon. My deepest sympathy to your family and friends.

Condolences also to the victim's family and friends. May they somehow find the closure they need now.

Sorry to hear that you are missing your friend so much.

A lot of our members have lost loved ones through executions so you will find many people will understand what you are going through.

I had a friend that was executed in 2002 and I still think about him every once in a while. I understand your sadness. Will be thinking of you during my prayers.
