In the United States, it’s a customary ritual to give a condemned prisoner a last meal of their choosing preceding their execution. Since many of the criminals subject to execution are morally and psychologically damaged, it’s interesting to see what they choose as their last meal before they die. Here are some famous last requests by notable criminals that are sure to give you the creeps.
Feguer was hanged in 1963 for kidnapping and murder and was the last person executed in Iowa. For his last meal, he requested a single olive with the pit still in it, with the hopes that it would grow into an olive tree from inside his body.
Ricky Ray Rector
Ricky Ray Rector was executed in 1992 for the 1981 murder of police officer Robert Martin in Conway, Arkansas. He requested steak, fried chicken, cherry Kool-Aid and pecan pie. He left the pecan pie on the side of the tray, telling the guards who came to take him to the execution chamber that he was saving it “for later.”
