On 4 March 1982 Vickers, already on death row for killing fellow inmate Frank Ponciano in 1978, doused fellow inmate Wilmar 'Buster' Holsinger and his cell with some Vitalis he had been saving and then threw burning toilet paper on Holsinger, setting him ablaze. Holsinger died as a result of tracheobronchial bums suffered in the resulting flash fire. Vickers' last meal request was for Green Chili Burros burritos with barbecued steak, french fries and ketchup, vanilla ice cream, cream soda, cigarette. Vickers' last words were "time to go."
