FLW: don’t do anything my I wouldn’t do

Famous Last Words
John Santo
San Quentin, California
June 3, 1955

“Don’t you fellows do anything I wouldn’t do.”

Santo was one of the three men who accompanied Barbara Graham during a robbery-gone-wrong resulting in the murder of an elderly woman. Three of those involved were executed for their part in the murder while the fourth disappeared under mysterious circumstances. It is believed the fourth was murdered to keep him from testifying against the others.
