28 November 2005 – Eric Nance
Heath’s vehicle was found abandoned on Highway 270, west of Malvern. Her body turned up a week later about eight miles away. The autopsy was inconclusive but her corpse showed head trauma. Her clothing looked like it had been cut.
Nance tried to pass it off as an accident, saying that Heath had broken down on the road. When he picked her up, his work knife slid out of his pocket. He then attempted to put the knife in the glove compartment, when Heath turned on him and kicked him.
As he put his hand up to defend himself, the knife fatally jammed into her throat. The story failed to impress and he was put to death by lethal injection in 2005, aged 45.
