Serial killer Gary Ray Bowles also known as the “I-95” killer was pronounced dead on Thursday, August 22 at age 57, after receiving a lethal injection, according to the Florida Department of Corrections. The execution came after the US Supreme Court rejected a last-ditch appeal yesterday from Bowles’ legal team, who argued that he was not mentally fit to undergo the death penalty. Bowles had spent 20 years on death row after confessing to the violent killings of 6 gay men in 1994. Bowles said his violent upbringing led him to leave home at 14 and become a sex worker to support himself. He was first arrested at the age of 20 in 1982 for attacking his then-girlfriend, serving 3 years of a 6 year sentence. Post his release, Bowles moved in with new girlfriend who became pregnant but had an abortion when she found out that he was a sex worker. Bowles told police at the time that he blamed gay men for his girlfriend’s abortion which led to his murderous rampage.
