Today is the end of the line for rapist and killer Paul Powell. It’s over. He will have his last meal. He is dead man walking. All the cliches. He dies tonight in the electric chair. It has been a long 11 year process to bring justice for this heinous crime.
Powell was convicted for raping and killing Yorkshire teen Stacie Reed. He also raped her sister and slit her throat. Her mother will attend the execution.
Powell will ‘ride the lightning.’ And after it is over, a mother is still left without a child, and a young woman is left without her sister. And all the riding of the lightning in the world really won’t right the wrong that has been done to this family.
