Row Killer’s Painful Death- The US Carries Out Its Second Federal Execution!!

Wesley Ira Purkey, 68, was convicted in charge of the rape and murder of a teenager. The killer’s has a painful death. He was also accused of murdering an 80-year-old lady. He was sentenced to death in 2004, and finally, the United States carried out its second federal execution on July 16, 2020. Wesley’s lawyers reportedly mentioned that their client had dementia and that he shouldn’t be executed. The execution was done by injecting a lethal injection.

In January 1998, Wesley kidnapped Jennifer Long, a 16-year-old teenage girl. He took the girl to his home, raped her, and stabbed her to death. He also dismembered the girl’s body, and burned it in a fireplace, put all the remains in a septic pond in Kansas.

Again in October 1998, Wesley beat up Mary Bales, an 80-year-old polio woman to death. He beat the women with a hammer. Neighbors caught him while burning the corpse of the lady. He pleaded and later he confessed that he has murdered both of them.

Primarily, his case has been blocked by the federal court. But later on, the US Supreme court reopened the case, and his execution sentence was passed.

Wesley’s Final Words

His final words were: “I deeply regret the pain and suffering I caused to Jennifer’s family. “I am deeply sorry. I deeply regret the pain I caused to my daughter, who I love so very much. This sanitized murder really does serve no purpose whatsoever.”

After his death sentence, he was given a lethal injection on July 16, 2020. His autopsy report also revealed that he suffered “severe bilateral acute pulmonary edema” and “frothy pulmonary edema in trachea and main stem bronchi”. According to a medical expert, a fluid entered his trachea and lungs which caused a “drowning sensation”. This sensation is described as “among the most excruciating feelings known to man”.
