    (October 19, 1944-March 31, 1984)
    Lived in Houston, Texas
    Murdered his 8-year-old son, Timothy (October 31, 1974)
    Executed on March 31, 1984 at 39
    Known as 'the Candy Man'
    He put poison into his own children's Pixie Stix candy on Halloween night.
    After his son died, he pretended the candy had come from a neighbor or stranger.
    In reality, he had taken out new insurance policies on both his children's lives shortly before the murder.
    He had also been seen buying potassium cyanide at a local hardware store.
    He gave poisoned candy to several other neighborhood kids as well, to make his son's murder look random.
    He never admitted to his crime.
    The murder caused a national paranoia about taking candy from strangers (even though Timothy was murdered by his father, not a stranger).
    He was executed by the State of Texas (March 31, 1984).
    Due to his incompetent stapling of the Pixie Stix tubes, none of the other children ate the poison.
    He donated his eyes for transplant.
