22 years ago The IV Was Inserted in His Left Thigh

Murderer Claude Howard Jones is executed by lethal injection at the age of 60 in Huntsville Prison, 815 12th Street, Huntsville, Texas, United States.

Jones' execution was delayed by about a half an hour because prison staff were unable to find suitable veins in his hands and arms. Executions are usually performed with an IV in each arm. In Jones' case only one IV was used and it was inserted in his left thigh.
