Amnesty International very much regrets that Raymond Lee Stewart was executed
as scheduled in Illinois on 17 September 1996. His final words were: "May you
all have peace because of this...may my victims' families have peace."
Thirty-two prisoners have been executed in the USA this year. Three-hundred
and forty two prisoners have been executed since the resumption of executions
Thank you to all those who sent appeals on behalf of Raymond Lee Stewart. No
further action is required by the Urgent Action Network.
