Michael Lee Lockhart Wikipedia
Michael Lee Lockhart was a multi-state serial killer who received death sentences in three states (Florida, Indiana, and Texas). He was executed on December 9, 1997 by the state of Texas.
He was captured when officer Paul Hulsey Jr. tried to arrest him for driving a stolen Corvette. Officers responding to the motel room where he was reported found Hulsey dead in the room. They put out an all points bulletin for the vehicle, which was spotted. A high speed chase ensued before Lockhart crashed and was soon apprehended. Evidence of his other crimes was found in the vehicle.
He was a suspect in the murder of Kathy Hobbs, a teenaged girl who went missing from Las Vegas, Nevada.
Lockhart was executed on December 9, 1997 in Texas. Lockhart's last words were, "A lot of people view what is happening here as evil, but I want you to know that I found love and compassion here. The people who work here, I thank them for the kindness they have shown me and I deeply appreciate all that has been done for me by the people who work here. That’s all, Warden, I’m ready."
