"Andre Thomas" is a convicted murderer and death row inmate from Grayson County, Texas/Grayson County, Texas. He murdered his estranged wife and two young children. While in custody, he physically removed both of his eyes and ate one, blinding himself. The bizarre nature of his crimes and his self injurious behavior has caused many people to question his sanity and, thus, the appropriateness and legality of executing him.

Evidently I did all right, because I'm here.
