Frank G. Spisak, Jr., was executed by the state of Ohio on February 17, 2011.  Frank was pronounced dead at 10:34 am EST, inside the execution chamber at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Mansfield, Ohio.  Frank was 59 years of age.  He was executed for the murder of 57-year-old Rev. Horace T. Rickerson on February 1, 1982, 57-year-old Timothy Sheehan on August 27, 1982, and 17-year-old Brian Warford or August 30, 1982.  Frank also shot 55-year-old John Hardaway, who survived his injures.  All the shootings occurred around Cleveland, Ohio.  Frank spend the last 28 years of his life on Ohio’s death row.

 

According to his parents, Frank had gender issues from childhood.  Frank had been a transvestite (enjoyed wearing woman’s clothes), and planned to have a sex-change operation, however he then changed his mind, deciding he wanted to become Hitler instead, and began waging war on African Americans and Jews.  While in prison, he reverted back to his female identity, suing the state for “keeping her locked up on Death Row in an all male prison environment where she cannot received appropriate hormonal and surgical treatment for her physical and mental defects.”

 

Please pray for peace and healing for the families of Horace Rickerson, Timothy Sheehan, and Brian Warford.  Please pray for healing for John Hardaway and his family.  Please pray for the family of Frank.
