I’ll be running four Executed Today entries in a row, starting today, and so the Headsman decided to honor me with themed set, for the second time. The first entry in this later themed set is Earl Gardner, who was hanged in 1936. They botched the execution badly and it took him over half an hour to die.
Selected by Chris way back in August, this week it’s Danielle Arion Bell, fourteen, missing from Pensacola, Florida since September 30, 2001. Like so many teens, she was last seen at a party with an older man. On the other hand, another man who’d been Danielle’s boyfriend doesn’t seem to have been cleared in her disappearance (his alibi witness backed out).
Initially thought to be a runaway, foul play is suspected in Danielle’s disappearance now. She’s been missing for as many years as she had been alive beforehand.
