Default He's Too Mentally Ill to Execute.

He's Too Mentally Ill to Execute. Why Is He Still on Death Row After 45 Years?

Raymond Riles arrived on Texas’s death row in 1976, the year President Gerald Ford lost his reelection bid and the first “Rocky” movie debuted in theaters. Riles had been sentenced to death in Houston for killing a used car salesman named John Henry.

Forty-five years and eight presidents later, Riles remains there, having survived three cancelled execution dates to become the longest serving death row prisoner in the state—and likely in the nation.

"Waiting is negative; hoping is positive. so try to wait with hope. This will help you remember that you're on your way to something worth waiting for."
