Allen L. Nicklasson was executed by the state of Missouri on December 11, 2013. Allen was pronounced dead at 10:52 pm CST, inside the execution chamber at the Eastern Reception, Diagnostic, and Corrections Center in Bonne Terre, Missouri. Allen was 41 years of age. He was executed for the murder of 47-year-old good samaritan Richard Drummond on August 24, 1994, near Kingdom City, Missouri.
Allen grew up fatherless and his mother was a mentally ill stripper, whose boyfriends frequently abused Allen. Allen spent time in several boys homes as a child and became addicted to drugs at a young age and was on his way to buy drugs when his car broke down. Richard offered to give Allen and his friends a ride to a telephone. Following Richard’s murder, Allen also murdered Joseph and Charlene Babcock in Arizona, who also provided assistance to Allen.
Please pray for peace and healing for the families of Richard Drummond and Joseph and Charlene Babcock. Please pray for the family of Allen.
