Further information on EXTRA 180/96 (AMR 51/93/96, 21 November 1996) - Death
USA (MISSOURI)Richard S ZEITVOGEL
Amnesty International very much regrets that Richard S Zeitvogel was executed
as scheduled in Missouri on 11 December 1996.
Zeitvogel became the sixth prisoner to be executed in Missouri in 1996, and
the twenty-third since Missouri resumed executions.
Forty-three prisoners have been executed in the USA in 1996, bringing the total
number of executions since 1977 to 356.
Thank you to all those who sent appeals on behalf of Richard Zeitvogel. No
further action is required by the Urgent Action Network.
