A man who admitted killing two women and four girls is scheduled to be executed Thursday after spending almost 29 years in a Florida prison.
David Alan Gore on Thursday met with his mother and an ex-wife and is scheduled to be put to death at 6 p.m. EDT.
Gore, now 58, had confessed to killing four teenage girls and two women in the 1980s in the eastern Florida town of Vero Beach, but was condemned to death for killing 17-year-old Lynn Elliott. He was simultaneously serving five life sentences for the other slayings, the Florida Department of Corrections reported on its website.
On July 26, 1983, Gore and his cousin, Fred Waterfield, picked up Elliott and her 14-year-old friend who were hitchhiking. According to the Associated Press, the men took them at gunpoint to Gore's parents' house. Waterfield left and Gore raped the girls, who were bound in separate rooms. Waterfield is serving two life sentences in prison.
