This auction is a signed issue of Nascar Illustrated magazine previously owned by executed Texas "Coast to Coast Killer" Mr. Tommy Lynn Sells (6/28/1964 – 4/3/2014). On 12/31/1999 Mr. Sells slit the throats of two young girls in Del Rio, TX. The 13-year-old victim would die, the 10-year-old victim survived. Her description would lead to his arrest on 1/2/2000, followed by his trial, conviction, death sentence, and execution. Sells's murder spree spanned from 1980 to 1999, with confirmed murder victims in Texas, Illinois, New York, Kentucky, and Missouri, thus earning him the moniker of the "Coast to Coast Killer." His victims included men, women, boys, girls, toddlers, even newborn infants, with motives ranging from rape, robbery, revenge, or seemingly no motive at all. Ultimately Sells would l be linked to some 20+ murders. Over the years Sells would boast to having committed multiple homicides, usually around 70 victims. However, in the months leading up to his execution, Sells sang a different tune, proclaiming the confessions were due to police coercion. Sells was executed by lethal injection on 4/3/2014. When asked if he would give a final statement he replied, "No."
