Just down the road from Brandon Hedrik, in Texas on the same day, Robert James Anderson was meeting a similar fate for a particularly heinous crime.

He was executed for the kidnap, attempted rape and murder of Audra Anne Reeves. The girl was just five years old.

Carted off

Neighbours spied him pushing a shopping trolley along the road, which contained a polystyrene ice box and thought nothing of it until the secret inside was revealed – the body of a young child who’d been beaten, stabbed and drowned.

After the ice box was discovered, Anderson was apprehended and found guilty of the crime. Needless to say, he got the death penalty otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this.

As the 40-year-old was hooked up to his killer gurney, Anderson addressed the grandmother of his victim, saying ‘I am sorry for the pain I have caused you’.

Having voiced his remorse, Anderson’s execution took place on this day in 2006.
