Here’s looking at you, Andre.

Death Row Eye

Did you hear about this guy?  Andre Thomas was arrested for the fatal stabbings of his estranged wife, Laura Christine Boren, 20, and their son, 4-year-old Andre Lee, and Laura’s  13-month-old daughter, Leyha Marie Hughes, in March 2004.  Not only did he stab these poor bastards, but he ripped their hearts out.  That’s pretty hardcore.  In fact, he walked right into the Sherman Police Department and told a dispatcher he had just murdered the three and had stabbed himself in the chest.

It gets better – Thomas told police how he put the hearts in his pocket and left their apartment, took them home, put them in a plastic bag and threw them in the trash.  What an animal, eh?  But get this – while he was awaiting trial, he plucked out one of his eyeballs. Perhaps to bolster his insanity defense?  Who knows what this wacko was thinking.  Anyway, it didn’t sway the judge, who found him competent enough to stand trial, and stand trial he did – needless to say, he’s been on death row in his home state of Texas ever since.  We know how much them Texans love to fry the bastards!

So, last month, while being treated in the prison psychiatric unit, he decided to pluck out his remaining eye – and he told authorities that he ate the fucking thing!  No date has been set for his execution, and his lawyers are glad that he’s now finally getting the mental health attention that they claim he has needed “from day one”.  Who knows if the guy is really crazy, or if he was just pissed that she left him and had a baby with some other dude.

Just another day in America, eh?

    There go my eye balls,
    Into the high balls!”
