It’s never too late to be executed in Texas

A 67-year-old Lester Bower, who killed four men in 1983, became the oldest man executed in Texas.

Mr Bower shot death the four men in an airplane hangar in Sherman and due to that became the oldest men executed in Texas since 1982, when such a punishment was resumed by its government.

At the time of his crime, Bower worked as a chemical salesmen and was absolutely clear in front of the law, without any criminal records. However, according to the prosecutors, four men was fatally shot by Lester in a hangar situated in Sherman, a ranching town north of Dallas.

Death row was waining for the Texas Man since 1984 when he lost his  Supreme Court Appeal

It was stated by the police that firstly he wanted to purchase a plane, but later stole it, killing the four at the same time. On 8 October 1983, Bob Tate, who appeared to be a building contractor and B&B Ranch owner, Philip Good, Grason County Sheriff’s Deputy, interior designer Jerry Brown as well as Ronald Mayes, who formerly was the local policeman, were found dead in the same hangar.

When the investigation had been launched and the police came to the Bower’s home, he initially lied to them about being at the crime scene. Although later officers found parts of the stolen plane in his house, so Bower was proved to be guilty.

While being imprisoned, Bower was maintaining his innocence. However, despite all his attempts, he became the eight man executed this year in Texas by lethal injection.

Much has been said about this case. Much has been written about this case. Not all of it has been the truth. But the time for discerning truth is over and it’s time to move on

– were Bower’s last words.
