30 years ago The World Could Kiss His Ass

Murderer Johnny Frank Garrett is executed by lethal injection at the age of 29 in Huntsville Prison, 815 12th Street, Huntsville, Texas, United States.

On 31 October 1981 Garrett supposedly raped, strangled and killed 76-year-old Sister Tadea Benz in the St. Francis ConventGarrett vehemently denied committing the crime. In 2004 DNA evidence linked Leoncio Perez Rueda to the crime. Rueda admitted to sexually assaulting a "nun" four months prior to the rape and murder of another elderly woman, Narnie Box Bryson, for which he was convicted. Physical evidence also linked Rueda to the crime, such as hairs found at the scene and on a white T-shirt formerly said to be that of Garrett. Garret's final meal request was for ice cream, his last words were: "I'd like to thank my family for loving me and taking care of me. The rest of the world can kiss my ass."
