Zagorsky electrocution
Death row inmate Edmund Zagorski died Thursday evening after Tennessee prison officials electrocuted him with the electric chair. The 63 year-old Zagorski was the second person to be put to death this year after Billy Ray Irick’s execution by lethal injection on August 9. He is the first person in Tennessee to die by electric chair since 2007. Zagorski was convicted in the 1983 murders of John Dale Dotson, of Hickman County, and Jimmy Porter, of Dickson. Prosecutors argued Zagorski lured them into the woods in Robertson County with the promise to sell them marijuana, and then he shot them, slit their throats and stole their money. Two minutes before the execution was set to begin at 7 p.m., the U.S. Supreme Court denied an appeal from Zagorski on the grounds of the unconstitutionality of choosing between the electric chair and lethal injection. His last words were, “lets rock.”
