25 Strangest Last Meal Requests On Death RowJul 19, 2023
You probably know the customary ritual of granting a prisoner a
mealbefore his execution. These vary from country to country, especially depending on the country's stance on capital punishment, but in the United States most states grant the request for food not just before execution, but a day or more. two in advance under the euphemism special
meal, although you can't always count on your request being granted, there have been some prisoners who have requested meals that are interesting enough to take a look at the main trends and today we are taking a look at 25 Clearly Strange Last Meal Requests.
We start the list with an entry that is both a little funny but also a little sad at the same time. David Leon Woods wanted a birthday cake for his
lastmeal. He wasn't executed on his birthday, but maybe he just wanted to celebrate one last time for the number 24. We have Andrew Lackey. Andrew just requested a very interesting food combination at his 2013 run. Turkey Bologna, French Fries, and Grilled Cheese. I don't see how Turkey Bologna would pair well. Any of this, but hey, to each his own Lackey was also the first person executed in the state of Alabama since 2011.
In Alabama you were doing great and one guy just ruined everything and number 23 is that Malka saw Kasab , who was executed. in India for being involved in the 2008 terrorist attack in Mumbai he actually refused one last meal, but he is still worthy of being on this list because instead of giving him anything the prison simply decided to give him a basket of tomatoes, maybe he hated tomatoes, who knows and At number 22 we have Alton Coleman, a terrible person largely because he is a serial killer, but also because of his final meal. He starts off innocent enough.
Fried chicken breast salad with French dressing. Sweet potato pie with whipped cream. French fries. cheese biscuits with gravy and a cherry coke, but his main order was a well-done filet mignon topped with mushrooms a well-done filet mignon that should have been considered a crime for number 21 Christopher Brooks was a simple man with simple desires , all he wanted for his last meal was two cups of peanut butter and a dr. pepper sounds like a delicious food is dead at number 20 we have Adolf Eichmann Eichmann was one of the main organizers of the Holocaust and was executed in 1962 in Israel for refusing a special meal, he simply asked for a bottle of caramel red wine a brand of wine popular in Israel with the normal prison food that included cheese, bread, olives and tea before his execution, he drank half the bottle wanting to get drunk before the execution of his own Roger Casement is on our list in the number 19 for your request, everything you asked for for your last meal. was a communion host shortly before his execution he converted to Catholicism and declared that he wanted to go to my
deathwith the body of my God since my 18th last meal is for Liddell Lee besides having a funny name he is probably also the most recent case on this list with his execution in 2017, his request is similar to that of Roger Casements, in that Liddell simply chose to receive Holy Communion as his last meal.
Timothy McVeigh, who caused the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing that killed more than one hundred and fifty people, ordered two pints of mint chocolate chip ice cream. He misses the last meal before his execution by lethal injection. That's a lot of ice cream, maybe. too much in our number 16 spot is Robert Dale Conklin Robert is by far the most elegant man on our list his last meal consisted of filet mignon wrapped in bacon deveined shrimp sauteed in lemon garlic butter a baked potato with sour cream butter chives real bacon bits corn on the cob asparagus with hollandaise sauce buttered french bread goat cheese melon apple pie with vanilla ice cream and iced tea looks like he has great taste, he murdered a man using a screwdriver in his ear and then dissected body and put the parts in a trash can, so maybe he doesn't have the best taste, our 15th position goes to Thomas J.
Grasso. there are a few people on this list who stand out for ordering ridiculous amounts of food Thomas J Grasso is one of the double murderers who ordered two dozen steamed mussels two dozen steamed clams half a dozen grilled ribs a double hamburger with Burger King cheese two strawberry milkshakes half a pumpkin pie with whipped cream and diced strawberries, he also ordered a 16-ounce can of spaghetti and meatballs that he wanted served at room temperature, however, he complained in a public statement that he had actually ordered SpaghettiOs, not just regular spaghetti, you almost feel bad for the guy, but maybe #14 on this list doesn't go to John Wayne Gacy.
John Wayne Gacy was executed in 1994 for murdering and sexually assaulting thirty-three young boys while he was dressed as a clown. His last meal wasn't as crazy as he was, but still. a little fried shrimp a little crazy a bucket of fried chicken with KFC's original recipe and finally a pound of strawberries yes, a pound of strawberries are delicious but that seems a little excessive to us at number 13 we have Steven Woods Woods was executed in 2011 for the murder of a young couple, his last order was also quite large two pounds of bacon a large steak pizza for fried chicken breasts two shots each of Mountain Dew root beer Pepsi and sweet tea two pints of ice cream five chicken fried steaks two burgers with bacon fries and a dozen breadsticks with garlic and marinara on the side and number 12 we have Peter Jamie Neil, one of the largest
deathrow prisoner meals in history, was requested by many, she ordered 20 beef tacos, 20 beef enchiladas, two double cheeseburgers, a fried jalapeño pizza. chicken, spaghetti, fruit cake, half chocolate cake, half vanilla cake, cookies and cream and caramel, pecan fudge ice cream, two cokes, two Pepsi's, two root beers and two glasses of orange juice sounds delicious if the excessive number 11 doesn't sound like Ricky Ray rector's last meal that I miss, he ordered a steak, fried chicken, cherry kool-aid and a slice of pecan pie.
The strange thing, however, is that he didn't eat the pecan pie. Instead, he told the prison that he was saving it for later and number 10 we have. Troy Davis, a man who could have been executed for a crime he didn't even commit, didn't request a last meal, supposedly only stating that this meal wouldn't be his last, which is pretty sinister. Our number nine goes to Stephen Anderson Anderson. the request also starts out normal but quickly takes a strange turn he ordered two grilled cheese sandwiches a pint of cottage cheese a ground corn mix a slice of frozen peach cobbler with chocolate chips and lastly radishes lots of radishes the guy must have loved them radishes our number eight is Garry Karl Simmons jr.
Garry is another person who simply ordered a giant amount of food: a Pizza Hut deep dish supreme pizza with double mushrooms, double onions, double jalapeños and double pepperoni, a second pizza with three cheeses, olives, bell peppers, tomatoes, garlic and Italian sausage, ten packages of eight ounces each. of Parmesan cheese and ranch dressing eight ounces of jalapeño nacho cheese four ounces of sliced jalapenos - 20 ounces of cherry soda two large strawberry milkshakes two pints of strawberry ice cream and a family bag of nacho cheese flavored doritos actually managed to finish half a meal I know it certainly couldn't be number seven.
Ronnie Lee Gardner's food may not sound very strange or crazy at first steak, lobster tail, apple pie with vanilla ice cream and a 7up, however, in addition to the food, he also asked the Lord. of the Rings trilogy, he was even allowed to finish the entire trilogy before executing him on ice. Keeper number six on our list is Victor Fig, where he feeds a very curious one where he was asked for a single olive with the pit still inside, maybe he loved olives maybe he had never tried one before, who knows the reason. The interesting thing is that after his execution, the olive pit was found in the pocket of his suit; according to some, the pit was actually buried with it.
Number five is Odell Barnes, he's another criminal who didn't do it. I didn't ask for a normal meal or even a joke meal to spite the prison, instead he simply asked for justice, equality, and world peace. A murderer advocating for world peace seems a bit of an oxymoron, although number four might be one of the most famous entries in this issue. list Lawrence Brewer, a white supremacist who committed the racially motivated murder of James Byrd Jr in 1998, probably ordered the most important meal on this list: fried chicken tenders and sliced onions smothered in gravy, a triple-beef burger with bacon and cheese with everything on the side, a cheese omelette. with ground beef, tomatoes, onions, bell peppers and jalapenos, a large bowl of fried okra with tomato sauce, 1 pound of roast beef and half a loaf of white bread, 3 fajitas with all the toppings, a Pizza Hut and a pizza for meat lovers, half a liter of Blue Bell vanilla ice cream. a piece of peanut butter candy with crushed peanuts on top and three root beers When he was executed, the Texas prison system allowed such gigantic
requests, so his request was accepted, but when the food arrived he did not eat anything, claiming that she just wasn't hungry as of 2011 texas stopped granting the last meal number three is potentially relatable to quite a few of us serial killer aileen wuornos apparently wasn't very hungry when she was on death row her last request for food was just A cup of coffee to be fair, however, before requesting a meal she had eaten a burger and a few other snacks at the local prison canteen, so she was probably already full.
We're almost on the
strangestrequest on this list, but our number two spot comes pretty close to To top it all off, Phillip Workman was executed for murdering a police officer and apparently didn't want one last meal, instead requesting that the prison give him a large vegetarian pizza to a homeless person in Nashville. The prison rejected the offer, but the request inspired people. bringing hundreds of pizzas to homeless shelters on the day the worker was executed, that means he actually caused something good to happen if he hadn't killed someone, he might even be considered a good person and eventually in the number one and potentially the
strangestrequest on this list. have James Edward Smith mr.
Smith requested a piece of dirt, not much to say about this one, apparently he just wanted to eat dirt before his death, sadly the prison denied this request and only gave him a cup of yogurt, hopefully he enjoyed that yogurt as much as he would.
