Executed Texas Death Row Inmates

Lee Andrew Taylor<br><br>
Executed: 06/16/2011 <br><br>
On 04/01/99, during the daytime, at TDCJ-ID Telford Unit dayroom, Taylor fatally stabbed an adult black male offender multiple times with an 8" home-made weapon. Taylor and one co-defendant had engaged in a fight with the victim due to racial tension between Taylor and the victim. Taylor was a member of the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas (a recognized security threat group). <br><br>
Last Words:  "Yes, sir. Jennifer, I love you. Mom, I love you. Rick, take care of you. For all of you people, I defended myself when I killed your family member. Prison is a bad place. There was eight against me. I didn't set out to kill him. I am sorry that I killed him, but he would not have been in prison if he was a saint. I hope ya'll understand that. I love you, baby.

I hope people understand the grave injustice by the state. There are 300 people on death row, and everyone is not a monster. Texas is carrying out a very inhumane and injustice. It's not right to kill anybody just because I killed your people. Everyone changes, right? Life is about experience and people change.

I love you, Jennifer. Mom, I love you and all my friends that I have known over the years that have always been there for me. I am ready to teleport. I love you, baby.

I hope you don't find satisfaction in this, watching a human being die."
