Last Meal Monday – Part 2

Another week has begun, and another posting about the last meals of condemned prisoners in the United States. I am starting to look forward to Mondays and this topic and it seems that I’m not the only one interested in this topic. Many people like to know what the condemned eat before being escorted to the death chamber.

(This post and series is not intended to cause controversy regarding capital punishment, and is only intended to discuss the final meals of those who have been judged in a court of law and sentenced to the death penalty.)

  • Where: Draper, UT

This meal was almost 29,000 calories!
