This auction is for a signed newspaper clipping from executed Texas serial killer Mr. Angel Maturino Reséndiz, also known as "The Railroad Killer" (8/1/1959 – 6/27/2006). Mr. Resendiz was an illegal immigrant who made the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List for a series of sexual assaults and murderers committed across the United States in the mid-1980's though the 1990's. Blunt force trauma was his primary method of murder, utilizing rocks and stabbing weapons. He became known as "The Railroad Killer" as most of his crimes were committed near railroads, which was his method of travel and likely aided in his evading law enforcement. Resendiz is believed to have committed at least 15 murders. He was arrested on 7/13/1999, in Texas, and sentenced to death by lethal injection. The case was largely celebrated in the media. His execution was carried out on 6/27/2006. He was 46.
ITEM DESCRIPTION: The newspaper clipping is signed on both sides. One of Reséndiz's strange signatures is accompanied by a full printed signature and the bible verse Leviticus 20:13. Reséndiz likely picked that scripture since the newspaper article details President Bill Clinton's "don't ask, don't tell" policy regarding gays serving in the United States military. For those of you not well read on the bible, Leviticus 20:13 states, "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." The other story is about a man defacing a painting of the Virgin Mary in New York. The newspaper clipping comes inside a protective comic book sleeve with an acid free board and has been stored flat. Message me with any questions you might have. Thanks for having a look-see.
