Frederick Treesh was executed today by the state of Ohio for his part in a massive five-state crime spree that included bank robberies, car-jackings, sexual assaults, and the murder of a security guard at an adult book store.
From a legal standpoint, Treesh had no appeals left. He also
had little personal appeal, as he declined to take a shower prior to his
execution. Treesh did, however, take advantage of Ohio’s generous and mostly
open-ended last meal policy. Treesh asked for a 32-ounce Porterhouse steak with
mushrooms, eggs and hash browns, onion rings, deep-fried mushrooms, cottage
cheese, a hot fudge sundae, one Coke, and one root beer.
