ET: Richard Overfield Sr.

I’ve got a new Executed Today entry, that of Richard Overfield, who in 1823 murdered his infant stepson because he didn’t want to support him. Killing a baby is bad enough, but on top of it all the method of murder was horrendous: Richard forced acid down his throat. Little Richard Jr. died a slow, painful death.
