Serial killer Aileen Wuornos made a chilling final statement moments before her execution, vowing that she would return. Wuornos, a former sex worker, confessed to killing and robbing seven of her clients between 1989 and 1990. She claimed the killings were acts of self-defense, stating that the men had either raped her or attempted to do so.
In 1991, she was apprehended and later convicted for the murder of Richard Mallory, receiving the death penalty. Subsequently, she pleaded no contest to three other murders and pleaded guilty to two more, resulting in a total of six death sentences.
Wuornos spent her remaining days on death row at the Florida Department of Corrections Broward Correctional Institution. During her incarceration, she participated in documentaries where she discussed her crimes, reported Ladbible.
In 2001, she expressed her desire for the state to execute her, stating that keeping her alive was a waste of taxpayers’ money. She claimed that she would kill again if given the chance and declared having hate within her.
In 2002, at the age of 46, Wuornos was executed by lethal injection. Witnesses reported that she smiled during the execution. When asked for a final statement, she cryptically said she was sailing with the rock and would return, similar to Independence Day, with Jesus on June 6, referencing a movie with a big mother ship.
Wuornos’ execution brought an end to her violent spree, leaving behind a legacy of heinous crimes and chilling statements.
