After lethal injection and moments before death, Texas inmate shouts “Wow! This is great! Thank you, warden!”
On September 2, 2002, 18-year-old Richard Cobb abducted two women and a man from a store in Rusk, Texas during an armed robbery. Cobb took the three to an East Texas field about 10 miles away where he raped one of the women and then shot all three with a 20-gauge shotgun and left them to die. Cobb, a drug addict who was already on probation for auto theft, did not realize that one of the women was still alive and would thereafter survive to testify against him. He was convicted of capital murder and spoke these haunting words mere seconds before he was executed.
