The Alexander Family Murders

August 30, 1987

The parallels between the Alexander family and my own are chilling. I, too, was brought up by a woman much like Ebora Alexander. My family is from Louisiana originally. And we were all brought up right and went on to become productive citizens.

My heart aches for the Alexander family. I am sure their suffering goes beyond description afforded by mere words. I agree with the social worker quoted at the end of the article: These aberrations, these mad dogs, cannot be executed fast enough. It is a mystery to me as to why they still strut around a prison, bragging about their crimes. Why haven't they been executed yet? I am certain that you will find no shortage of volunteers willing to pull that switch. And I include myself in that category.
