This evening, three more federal prisoners were removed from their regular cells on death row in Terre Haute, read their execution warrants, and installed in the federal death watch section of the prison. No goodbyes, and no warnings, although we know they have all been looking over their shoulders since April.
In the wake of last night’s execution of Orlando Hall, new execution dates have been added for December 11, and January 14 & 15. This makes five federal prisoners awaiting execution on top of eight already killed since July. Read our statement here.
