Murderer Ronald Clark O'Bryan aka The Pixy Stix Killer aka The Man Who Killed Halloween is executed by lethal injection at the age of 40 in Huntsville Prison, 815 12th Street, Huntsville, Texas, United States.

On 31 October 1974 O’Bryan poisoned his 8-year-old son Timothy with a cyanide-laced Giant-sized Pixy Stix in order to claim life insurance money to ease his own financial troubles. O’Bryan also distributed poisoned candy to his 5-year-old daughter Elizabeth and four other children in an attempt to cover up his crime, however neither his daughter nor the other children ate the poisoned candy.
