  1. I would hire an inmate to make this guy’s daily life a living hell, but I don’t know any inmates in Illinois. The crimes this monster committed are an example of what shoukd be a slam dunk death penalty case. The last minutes of this young mother, being tortured and no doubt fearing for her 9 month old child. I care zero that this guy’s child went to live with her mother in Texas or any other bs mitigating factor. The aggregators outweigh any motivators he could come up with.

  2. This man was sentenced to death, but Illinois abolished the death penalty in 2011
