69 years ago He Died in a Special Concrete Structure

Murderer Wayne Leroy Long is executed by the gas chamber at the age of 26 in Oregon State Penitentiary, Salem, Oregon, United States.

All Oregon executions except for that of Long have been held within the Oregon State Penitentiary in Salem. Long died in a special concrete structure built near the prison because the superintendent believed it would have less of a 'bad psychological effect' on other inmates. But the state later determined that the penal code required executions to occur within the penitentiary walls.
