Convicted Serial Killer Who Admitted to Illinois Murders Put to Death


A serial killer whose string of murders included several in Illinois has been put to death in Texas.

 

Tommy Lynn Sells was executed after a temporary delay prompted by legal wrangling over the lethal injection drugs that were used to put him to death. Sells admitted to murdering a Southern Illinois couple and their children in 1987.

 

He also reportedly told researchers that he killed an Illinois boy in the 1990s… a crime for which the boy’s mother was convicted and then later exonerated.

 

Sells was never put on trial for those Illinois crimes.
