Vampire Killer Gets Steak to the Heart
Pablo Vasquez, dubbed the “Vampire Killer” by the press, was executed tonight by the state of Texas. Vasquez earned his death sentence by killing a 12-year-old boy in 1999; the victim was beaten with a pipe before Vasquez cut the boy’s throat and drank his blood, claiming that a voice inside his head told him to do it. Vasquez then tried to decapitate the boy with a shovel, but only managed to remove his scalp. When the boy’s body was found, both of his arms and one foot had been cut off, and some of his teeth were missing.
Because Texas no longer allows special last meal requests, Vasquez was served the same food as others in his unit. There was no mention of garlic or crosses on the food tray, but prison officials did wield a stake against the Vampire Killer—or a steak, rather. For his last meal, Pablo Vasquez was served Salisbury steak, steamed rice, brown gravy, a vegetable blend, sweet peas, ranch style beans, sliced bread, and butterscotch brownies, with a choice of water, tea, or punch (but no blood) to drink.
