This auction is for a signed print of a painting by executed Texas serial killer Mr. Anthony Shore, also known as the "Tourniquet Killer" (6/25/1962 – 1/18/2018). In 1998 Shore was required to register as a sexual predator after being convicted of molesting his two daughters. That DNA file collected with his registration linked Shore to a decade old cold case. During his interview with police in relation to that homicide Shore confessed to three additional murders. He committed through the 1980's and 1990's in the Houston area. Shore earned his moniker as the "Tourniquet Killer" for strangling his victims with handmade tourniquets. Shore was ultimately convicted on only one murder and sentenced to death in 2004, a sentence he had requested. Shore was granted his request when he was executed on 1/18/2018. After making his final statement it's been loosely reported that as the lethal dose of pentobarbital was being pumped into his body Shore stated it "burned" and then said, "Oooh-ee! I can feel that," before losing consciousness. Shore was pronounced dead 13 minutes later. He was 55.
