Final Execution Carried Out Under President Trump

Dustin Higgs becomes 13th death penalty carried out in 6 months by DOJ.

In the final days of the current administration, inmate Dustin Higgs was executed by lethal injection at a federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana, on Saturday. He had been granted a temporary stay due to his COVID-19 infection, but higher courts overruled the stay.

Higgs had been convicted of the kidnapping and killing of three women in Washington, D.C. that occurred in 1996. “He received a fair trial and was convicted and sentenced to death by a unanimous jury for a despicable crime,” U.S. District Judge Peter Messitte wrote in his December 29 ruling.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the Justice Department as it seeks to protect society from criminal activity.
  • That the FBI would be used by God to accomplish His justice in the nation.
  • For the orderly and peaceful transition to the coming administration.
