The Tourniquet Killer

 

Tonight, the State of Texas (that’s us) executed (killed) Anthony Shore, otherwise known as the tourniquet killer.

 

Though the stories are slightly different, the result is the same. They were all murdered.

 

Laurie Tremblay was 14.

 

Maria Estrada was 21.

 

Diana Rebollar was 9.

 

Dana Sanchez was 16.

 

Though the story is slightly different, the result is the same. He was murdered.

 

Anthony Shore was 55.

 

Who is the real killer?

 

“Only monsters kill.” I couldn’t believe it. The words had just exited the mouth of a police officer. That’s not the unbelievable part. The unbelievable part is that he’d killed a perpetrator a few months prior. Could he hear what he was saying? I didn’t want to miss the chance to find out. “So, are you a monster?” The question drew anger out of his bones. I was prepared for him to punch me. I don’t know how long he waited to speak. I do know that it felt like an eternity. Finally, he simply offered, “No.” He knew and I knew that such a simple response was inadequate to engage the depth of the question. There was a simple underlying principle informing our discussion…killing is killing is killing.
