houston - A US serial killer escaped the death penalty for a few hours before his execution because new facts have emerged.
The now 55-year-old Anthony Shore was sentenced to death for thirteen years for the murder of 21-year-old Maria del Carmen and three other young girls in Houston.
Last summer, guards found in his cell information about another murder: on Melissa Trotter. Justice, however, is certain that the murder has been committed by another. However, the judge decided to postpone the execution just before the 18th of January 2018. Then it should be clear that Trotter has not been definitively killed by former phone engineer Anthony Shore.
For his sister Laurel, the delay must be a big disappointment. In various American media, she has announced that she is watching Tony's death.
In 1986, he started as a murderer with the terrible death of a 14-year-old girl who was just in front of a bus stop. Six years later, a 21-year-old woman was the bullet and in 1994 he killed 9-year-old Diana Rebollar. All victims were stricken in the same way, renamed the Tourniquet killer. He fell through the basket when his DNA was found under the fingernail of a victim.
