Karla Faye Tucker is the 1st female murderer executed in Texas since 1976. Her last words were…..“ Yes sir, I would like to say to all of you — the Thornton family and Jerry Dean’s family — that I am so sorry. I hope God will give you peace with this. Baby, I love you. Ron, give Peggy a hug for me. Everybody has been so good to me. I love all of you very much. I am going to be face to face with Jesus now. Warden Baggett, thank all of you so much. You have been so good to me. I love all of you very much. I will see you all when you get there. I will wait for you. ”
“Please don’t kill me.” She pleaded with President Bush not to let her be executed. Bush mocked her and said no in return. She turned to Jesus like some of them do in prison. I’m an atheist so I think it’s all bullshit but say that she had been saved…..she could of turned to her Jesus before the murders! Who in their right mind has orgasms everytime they hit a person with a pickaxe? Not to mention, weren’t these two people pleading for their lives? Karla Fay Tucker needed to suffer for her idiotic actions. I would have been for her living her life in prison thinking about her mistakes for the rest of her life. Awwwww, you had a fucked up child hood? That’s great. So did I. So did a lot of people. We aren’t out there murdering people with a pickaxe. She sat on death row for over ten years. That must of been nerve racking. This whole trial and matters of execution was widely publicized. Some people were chanting to fry the bitch and some were asking to spare her life.
Karla was born and raised in Houston, Texas. Her parents divorced at age ten and she then found out her daddy wasn’t her real daddy. By the age of 12, she was already using drugs and having sex. At age 14, she stopped attending school and went into prostitution with her mother, a rock groupie, and traveled with bands like the Allman Brothers. Not to mention, the Eagles. She married briefly at the age of 16.
As for the murders, Karla spent the whole weekend doing drugs with her boyfriend Danny Garrett and their friends. Karla and Danny entered Jerry Dean’s home at 3am on June 14th 1983 intending to steal Dean’s motorcycle. WOW, this is all over a fucking motorcycle. Karla and Danny enter the bedroom and wake Jerry. Danny then starts to hit Jerry in the back of the head with a hammer numerous times. He claims to of found the hammer on the floor. Danny left the room to get motorcycle parts and Karla stayed inthe bedroom. Because of all the blows to Jerry’s head, it caused his head to become unhinged. There are no public crime scene photos but I saw them on a documentary before and it’s pretty disgusting. After his head became unhinged from his neck, his breathing passages filled with fluid causing a gurgling sound. Karla wanted him to stop making that noise so she attacked him with a pickaxe. Karla then noticed a woman hidden under the bed covers against the wall. The woman was Deborah Thornton. Karla attacked her with the pickaxe and embedded the axe into her heart. This is when Karla claims to of had orgasms. The next day, co-workers of Jerry discovered the bodies.
Danny Garrett died in prison of liver disease in 1993 but would of been executed had he not passed away. Karla’s last meal request request consisted of a banana, a peach, and a garden salad with ranch dressing. She selected five people to watch her die, including Thornton’s husband Richard and his two stepchildren, who supported the death penalty, and Thornton’s brother Ronald Carlson, who opposed the execution and had been converted by her faith after visiting Tucker on death row. There are a few films on Karla Fay Tucker. The only one I had seen was Last Dance (1996) starring Sharon Stone. You cannot help but feel sorry for Sharon Stone.
