11 September 1929 – Homer Simpson

We couldn’t let this one slip by without a mention. Homer Simpson was put on the electric chair on this day in 1929.

Disturbingly he was an ex-copper – a police chief no less – and he certainly wasn’t a resident of Springfield.

Mr Burns

Instead he was from Georgia and the 40-year-old became “Mr Burns” after he was strapped to Old Sparky following his trial, which found him guilty of committing murder during a robbery.

He was fried along with 31-year-old Malcolm Morrow, who was done for the same crime.
