Serial killer, rapist, arsonist and burglar Carl Panzram aka A Journal of Murder is executed by hanging at the age of 39 in United States Penitentiary, Metropolitan Avenue, Leavenworth, Kansas, United States.

While the noose was being put around his neck, Panzram allegedly spat in his executioner's face and declared "I wish the entire human race had one neck, and I had my hands around it!" When asked by the executioner if he had any last words, Panzram barked "Yes, hurry it up, you Hoosier bastard! I could hang a dozen men while you're screwing around!"
