Cleveland State Killer Set to Die at 10 a.m. (Update)

Spisak, back in the day
  • Spisak, back in the day

Yep, the bell tolled for Frank Spisak at 10:34 this morning. Last night he had spaghetti with a light tomato sauce, salad with Italian dressing, and chocolate cake. We wonder if it was German chocolate cake.


It appears that Frank Spisak, the neo-Nazi who shot and killed three people at Cleveland State in 1982, will be executed in a few minutes. The U.S. Supreme Court yesterday rejected his appeal claiming that the state’s capital punishment law is unconstitutional. The high court offered no comment on the appeal.

The Cleveland State killing spree was part of a long shooting campaign of Spisak’s that targetted blacks.

Spisak intends to spend his last moments in true Neo-Nazi style.

According to NewsNet5:

Spisak will make a final statement before being put to death. As part of the statement, Spisak said he will recite the first seven chapters of the Bible's book of Revelations in German.

Spisak is presumably hoping for a last minute reprieve as soon as he starts wading through it. His attorneys however, have not said whether they plan to file any additional appeals this morning. Seems that time for that is running out.
