Inmate Clayton Lockett, who received a lethal injection, took over 40 minutes die and reportedly writhed and groaned before finally succumbing. The state claimed that Lockett’s veins had failed, and the autopsy shows that they were pricked multiple times.
On June 3, 1999, Stephanie was driving a friend home in her Chevy pickup and had the misfortune of arriving when three men were there, supposedly attempting to beat a debt out of Bobby Bornt, 23, who lived there with his 9-month-old son.
One man hit Stephanie’s friend with a shotgun and forced her to call Stephanie inside. The men then raped the friend and beat Stephanie, when she refused to give up her truck keys. They bound her with duct tape and drove her to a country road.
Still, she refused to say she wouldn’t call the police on them, so they forced her to her knees and made her watch one gunman dig a grave. When one man shot her, his gun jammed, while Stephanie screamed. The man cleared his weapon and shot her again. Even though she was still breathing, the man ordered his accomplices to bury her, which they did.
It’s not clear whether it took 45 minutes or more for Stephanie to die, but it is clear that she was buried alive and suffered greatly.
Should we care that he suffered, I don’t. They shot Stephanie, and then buried her ALIVE! I say divine retribution, and Stephanie can rest in peace now.
