I am looking for any information I can find about Rich Owens, the executioner at McAlaster State Prison until his death in 1948. I am familiar with the interview of him in the Daily Oklahoman published shortly after his death. If half of what is in that interview is true, he was a really remarkable man. Are there any pictures of him? Does he have family still living in Oklahoma?
I have 2 newspaper articles about him one with a picture. I emailed them to you
I think we ran an article on Owens several years ago in the Journal. I will see if I can find it.
