Synopsis: In an instant ex-Sheriff Captain and respected businessman Hilton Crawford became the most hated man in Montgomery County, Texas. Was he a cold-blooded killer, or was he duped? Were there other parties involved who were never apprehended? Was justice really served in his execution? Seed of Villainy reveals the true details of his life and his crime as told in Death Row interviews prior to his death by lethal injection. It is the moving journey of one man through his desperate act and subsequent trial and execution.

Book Description Texas Review Press, United States, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In an instant ex-Sheriff Captain and respected businessman Hilton Crawford became the most hated man in Montgomery County, Texas. Was he a cold-blooded killer, or was he duped? Were there other parties involved who were never apprehended? Was justice really served in his execution? Seed of Villainy reveals the true details of his life and his crime as told in Death Row interviews prior to his death by lethal injection. It is the moving journey of one man through his desperate act and subsequent trial and execution. For his seven-year stint on Texas death row, Crawford was a model prisoner. Freed from the self-imposed pressures of his outside life, his health improved and he re-dedicated himself to Christ. There was seldom a time in which he could speak without tears of McKay or the hurt he had caused. He never saw or spoke to Connie again, but his love for her and his boys never lessened. During his incarceration prisoners on the row became something like a surrogate family for Crawford. His fellow inmates, the murderers and rapists who so brutally executed their victims, took the place of the children he had coached. No matter their crime, he accepted each of them. He listened when they wanted to talk, offering advice or words of solace whenever needed. The week before his death he used his last commissary spend to buy two pints of ice cream for each of his fellow deathwatch inmates. And, in the end, in his final statement, he thanked God for his time spent on Death Row . Seller Inventory # AAN9781881515999
