Last Words: Carl Panzram


"Hurry up, you Hoosier bastard, I could kill ten men while you're fooling around."

- Carl Panzram (1891-1930), American serial killer.

Panzram confessed to 21 murders but was convicted of only 4. He was sentenced to death by hanging for battering to death another inmate, the head of the prison laundry, whilst an inmate at Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary in Kansas. He refused to appeal and threatened to kill human rights groups that attempted to appeal on his behalf. Asked by his executioner whether he had any last words, he responded as above.
