“...justice wasn’t enough. I wanted a body!”
One hour before his execution, ex-police officer turned active shooter, Daryl “Spook” Spokane, will give a live televised interview from Death Row. Convicted of murdering five of his fellow officers during the Morning Roll Call massacre, Spokane will reveal why he committed such a heinous act. This will be the first time Spokane has uttered a single word in three years since the mass shooting.
