Roderick Nunley was executed by the state of Missouri on Tuesday, September 1, 2015.  Roderick was pronounced dead at 9:09 pm CDT, inside the execution chamber at the Eastern Reception, Diagnostic, and Corrections Center in Bonne Terre, Missouri.  Fifty-year-old Roderick was sentenced to death for his part in the kidnapping, rape, and murder of 15-year-old Ann Harrison on March 22, 1989, in Raytown, Missouri.  Roderick spent the last 24 years of his life on Missouri’s death row.

 

Roderick's execution was delayed approximately three hours while the Supreme Court of the United States considered his appeals.

 

According to family members, Roderick had a troubled childhood.  Roderick was also known to make poor decisions when using cocaine.

 

On the evening of March 21, 1989, Roderick Nunley and his friend Michael Taylor got together, smoking crack cocaine.  They then decided to steal a car and just drive around, which included evading police who tried to pull them over for a broken tail light.  Around 7 am on March 22, Nunley, who was driving, and Taylor spotted high-school freshman Ann Harrison in the driveway of her home, waiting for her school bus.  Taylor allegedly told Nunley that he wanted to steal her purse.  Nunley stopped the car and Taylor exited, spoke to the girl, grabbed her, and forced her into the car.  Nunley drove all three of them to his mother's house.

 

Once at Nunley's mother's house, they forced Ann out of the vehicle and forced her to crawl down to the basement, where Taylor raped her and Nunley assisted by providing lubricant.  After raping her, they tied her up and put her in the trunk of the stolen vehicle, saying they were going to call her parents for ransom money.  They never called her parents.  Fearing that Ann would be able to identify them, Taylor and Nunley decided to kill her.  After retrieving two knives from the kitchen, Taylor and Nunley stabbed Ann a total of ten times and left her to die.  It took approximately 30 minutes for Ann to die from her wounds.

 

After killing Ann, Taylor and Nunley drove the stolen vehicle to a nearby neighborhood and left it, with Ann still in the trunk.  It was days before Ann's body was discovered.

 

Taylor and Nunley both confessed to the crime, although neither confessed to raping Ann, each pointing the finger at the other.  They were each convicted of murder and given a death sentence.  DNA testing later showed Taylor was the one to rape Ann.  Taylor was executed on February 26, 2014.

 

Please pray for peace and healing for the family of Ann Harrison.  Please pray for the family of Roderick Nunley.
