The execution of Angel Maturino Resendiz, known as “The Railroad Killer”, on June 27 may endanger the life of another innocent person. There is no doubt that Maturino Resendiz is guilty of murder, however his execution may mean the family of another person on death row named Louis Castro Perez may not be able to prove Perez’s innocence. The Railroad Killer has been convicted of one murder and is suspected in at least 14 other killings nationwide. “If Maturino Resendiz is executed before a full investigation into the possibility that he committed additional murders, including those for which my brother has been sentenced to death, then Texas risks becoming responsible for yet another innocent person’s execution”, said Delia Perez Meyer, sister of Louis Castro Perez.
Please take this opportunity to urge Governor Perry to stop the execution. A protest will take place on the day of the scheduled execution from 5:30-6:30 p.m, in various cities throughout Texas, including outside the Governor’s mansion in Austin and outside The Walls Unit in Huntsville.
