Most disturbing final words of killers executed on Death Row

No matter who you are or what you have done - to know you are saying your last ever words - must be a frightening prospect for some.


While god-fearing individuals will tend to utter similar-ish sentences, those who are scared/unconcerned with the unknown, sometimes write the most eerie last words.

A bizarre website has devised a long list of Death Row inmates and their final words.


Below is a few of the more shocking and strange ones we've seen:

After opening fire at a Hannah Montana-themed children’s party, Erick Davila, 31, was sentenced to death by lethal injection.

Before his passing in April 2018, Davilla said he believed there was a rival gang present nearby.


Instead, he shot and killed Queshawn Stevenson, 5, and her grandmother Annette Stevenson, 48.

A woman and three more children were also injured as a result of the terrible shooting.

Davila was apparently a member of the ‘Bloods’ street gang, according to prosecutors at the time.

He told the investigators his aim was to end the life of Queshawn's dad.


Davilla’s last words were certainly chilling, as he said: “I would like to say nephew it burns huh. You know I might have lost the fight but I’m still a soldier. I still love you all. To my supporters and family y’all hold it down. Ten Toes down right. That’s all.”

Danielle Simpson killed his former schoolteacher Geraldine Davidson, 84, in 2000.

A 20-year-old Simpson, along with his teenage wife, teenage brother and 13-year-old cousin issued a burglary attempt as Davidson - who got in the way - was put in a car boot and thrown into a river with a cinder block tied to her ankles.


Simpson wrote: "If I can't be free - Kill Me!

"I'm tired of being in a institution that's unjust, degrading, and corrupted... I'm tired of struggling to survive in a system that's highly injustices. I'm ready to die!

"Yeah, I want to tell my family I love ya'll. Tell Kate I love her too. Tell brother, my kids I live ya'll. I'm gonna miss ya'll. I'm ready, ready."

67-year-old Lester Bower spent 31-years on Death Row for killing four men at an aircraft hanger in 1983.


He was given a lethal dose of pentobarbital.

"Much has been written about this case, not all of it has been the truth," his last words read.

"But the time is over and now it is time to move on. I want to thank my attorneys for all that they have done. They have afforded me the last quarter of a century."
