Skip to comments.Ohio rapist who claimed drug allergy executed

A serial rapist who strangled a 16-year-old girl in 1988 and who had argued he might be violently allergic to the state's execution drug was put to death Tuesday with no apparent complications.
As the lethal injection began, Darryl Durr clenched his fists, grimaced and held his head up for about 10 seconds before gently putting it down. It wasn't clear if he was in pain or emotionally reacting to the moment.
Durr, 46, was pronounced dead at 10:36 a.m. at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville.
"He was a monster," the victim's mother, Norma Jean Godsey, said after witnessing the execution.
Durr kidnapped 16-year-old Angel Vincent from her home in Elyria on Jan. 31, 1988, while her mother and stepfather were away at a Super Bowl party, prosecutors said. He raped and strangled her with a dog chain and hid her body inside two orange traffic barrels placed end-to-end in a Cleveland park.

RIP Angel Vincent.
I hope they swabbed the injection site with alcohol. It’d be a shame if he got a nasty infection.
Good riddance to bad rubbish. The story reminded me of the condemned man who looked at a rickety scaffold and asked if it was safe.
He may be right. It sounds like he had a fatal drug reaction to me.
Rest in Hell.
What's the worst thing that could happen.
He might DIE????
Well he was right, he was allergic to the drugs. So allergic that it killed him.
Fast and certain justice, Barf!
I’m glad they carried this out without some catastrophe befalling the deceased.
“with no apparent complications”.
Aside from, you know, death and stuff.
They have pictures of that creep (oh, wow, call me a racist) all over the news but not one picture of the girl he murdered.
Executions should be humane, but that doesn’t mean they have to be pleasant.
Just wondering if he died as a result of the pharmaceuticals administered or an adverse reaction to the pharmaceuticals administered. I mean, did he break out in hives before being pronounced dead? Did he complain of shortness of breath...chest pains, ringing in the ears?
Amen to this story. . .
“Twenty two years “
It’s disgusting, and embarrassing.
Looks to me like he suffered a fatal reaction to the execution cocktail.
Which was kinda the point. But we have execution methods way too kind for what these monsters do. Start drawing and quartering in the public square and the murder/rape rate would plummet.
LMAO! I was thinking the same thing.
Hey Darryl, thiopental sodium in a hefty dose holds a lethal ‘allergic’ reaction for all of us: it’s spelled D-E-A-T-H.
We can only hope...
