Christopher Scott Emmett
July 24, 2008
“Tell my family and friends I love them, tell the Governor he just lost my vote. Y’all hurry this along, I’m dying to get out of here.”
Emmett was executed by lethal injection for the murder of a co-worker and roommate, John F. Langley. Langley had bought and grilled food for Emmett and their co-workers earlier that evening before Emmett used a lamp to bludgeon Langley’s head as he slept. Emmett then stole $100 from Langley to buy crack cocaine before “discovering” Langley’s body and reporting the crime to police. During the investigation, Emmett confessed to the murder and robbery.
