2 November 2005 – Melvin White
White swiped his 9-year-old neighbour Jennifer Lee Gravell, bound her hands and drove her to a deserted area. He then proceeded to have his way with her before battering her to death with a car tool.
But he’d been seen abducting Gravell and soon found himself banged up where he confessed all. Or had he? It emerged in trial that he’d also repeatedly assaulted and raped his young daughter, even going so far as to pay her a weekly wage of $50 to be his sex slave.
No-one was safe – he’d assaulted his four-year-old female cousin and pawed a teenager when she had visited his home. The lascivious letch was given the lethal injection in 2005, aged 55.
