Stocking Strangler Hoses the Media

Before Carlton Gary, AKA the Stocking Strangler, was executed by the state of Georgia late last night, he was asked if he wanted to make a final statement. Gary said no.

Gary also said no to the offer of a final prayer. And he declined to eat any of his last meal. Oh, and he also declined to order a special last meal in the first place, so he was served the same "institutional tray" as others in his unit: a hamburger, a hot dog, white beans, coleslaw, and a grape beverage.

For the man who was convicted of raping and strangling three elderly women with their own stockings, his last night was a parade of no's, because he also held steadfastly to his claim of innocence.

No confession. No remorse. No last meal. No last words. No kidding.
