Description

Gilmore robbed and murdered Max Jensen, a Sinclair gas station employee on the evening of July 19, 1976. The next evening, he robbed and murdered Bennie Bushnell, a motel manager at City Center Inn. He murdered these people even though they complied with his demands. Gilmore was executed by firing squad at Utah State Prison in Draper, Utah. The night before, Gilmore had requested an all-night gathering of friends and family at the prison mess hall. On the evening before his execution, he was served a last meal of steak, potatoes, milk and coffee; he consumed only the milk and coffee. His uncle claims to have smuggled in three small bottles of Jack Daniels
