The murderer who escaped execution twice is tired of waiting for death
A prisoner of the US state strict regime prison, convicted of execution, confessed that he could no longer wait for punishment after it was postponed twice.
In 2007, Scott Dozier was sentenced to death for killing a 22-year-old man who was found decapitated and dismembered at the Las Vegas hotel. In 2017, Dozier demanded the execution of the sentence, since his execution was postponed twice, but it did not take place.
A man who has been formally found guilty of a brutal murder can not be executed because of ongoing debates about the admissibility of lethal injections in the state of Nevada.
“I do not think that anyone cares. I’m lousy. I constantly think about writing to the authorities and saying to them: “Listen, just let me use injections, I’m already on the edge and suffering”, – Dozier told journalists by phone.
The man added that after his executions were canceled, special people were looking after him for the next five days to prevent him from committing suicide. He categorically rejected the suspicion that he was a suicide. “I do not want to die, seriously. But it’s better to die than to be in this prison”, he told The Reno Gazette Journal.
The next trial on his case was postponed until September 10. Dozier admitted that he was very tired and called the expectation of the execution of the verdict a real torture.
