Florida Serial killer Bobby Joe Long, the subject of my book, BOUND TO DIE,  is scheduled for execution on May 23rd, 2019.  I'm sure I will experience a sense of closure since I have continued to study the case since 1995 when the book was first publsihed, but my thoughts are complicated.  While there is no doubt in my mind that he deserves to die, I'm sure his many years on Florida's Death Row have been hell on earth .  There is really no rehabilition in prison however, and the laws are clear on punishment for a capital crime.  Obviously, the murdered young women would have preferred living another 34 years, as he has done.  Of course Long stayed alive largely due to mistakes made by law enforcement early in his arrest, changes in the law during his incarceration, and clever legal representation by headline seeking lawyers in this high profile case.  Clearly, throughout my lengthy true crime writing career the Bobby Joe Long murder case has been of paramount interest to me.
