florida executes serial killer who murdered 10 women
Bobby Joe Long, 65, was pronounced dead at 6: 55. m.
Florida State Prison injected deadly drugs on Thursday.
The witness said that there was not a last sentence for a long time, just to close your eyes at the beginning of the procedure.
In 1984, when women began to die, the killers were scared for eight months in the Tampa Bay area, and their bodies often posed in terrible poses.
Most people were strangled, some were cut and others were sticks.
Until Lisa Nolan\'s case, law enforcement had little clue, and she survived an attack on Long.
She witnessed Thursday\'s execution in the front row.
Noland was kidnapped by Long outside a church in 1984. Protesters in the shooting at Harris\'s mother Virginia Beach interrupted Harris\'s conversation.
He raped her, but eventually let her go.
She left evidence of his crime at the scene and provided the police with details that led to his arrest.
Long admitted the crime and was sentenced to 28 life sentences and a death penalty for the murder of 22 peopleyear-

Nolan arranged herself in the witness room, hoping Long would see her there.
\"I want to look into his eyes.
I want to be the first person he saw.
\"Unfortunately, he didn\'t open his eyes,\" she said.
\"It\'s comforting to know that this actually happened.
She said she began to cry once the room was over.
\"The peace I feel is an extraordinary feeling,\" she said . \".
Another witness, wearing a polo shirt, had a picture of the victim on the front with the words \"disappeared but not forgotten \".
\"Behind is a photo and important text of all 10 victims killed . \".
CBS Tampa affliate WTSP reported: \"The family of the Dragon\'s victims were interviewed by the media after the execution.
Brother Vivian elute thanked the government.
Ron desantees signed the executive order, and Chanel Williams\'s mother said the executive order reassured her because she knew that justice had been done.
Kingswan\'s sister said she thought the dragon was as shocked as the survivors of his execution.
She said she thought he would sit in prison until he died naturally.
Nolan has long been a victim.
She said that the day before she was kidnapped, she wrote a suicide note planning to end her life after years of sexual abuse by her grandmother\'s boyfriend.
But she finally made the most of that history.
Earlier this week, she told The Associated Press: \"It wasn\'t new to me when he pointed the gun at my head . \".
She said that from her past abuse, she knew that it would irritate him if she fought for a long time.
\"I have to know who he is and what excites him.
Will it end my life if I go the wrong way?
So actually, the night before I wrote the suicide note, now I\'m in a situation where I have to save my life, \"she said on Wednesday.
Investigators were puzzled by the trail of bodies left around Tampa Bay.
Artiss Ann Wick was killed for the first time in March 1984.
Nine others followed.
Before Norland told her story, there was little clue from law enforcement.
Norland said in advance that she knew what she would say if she could make a long speech.
Nolan said, \"I\'ll say, \'Thank you for choosing me, not the other 17 --year-old girl. \'\" \"Another 17-year-
\"The old girl may not be able to handle it like I did,\" she said . \".

Wife Cindy Brown told The Associated Press that as the attacks intensified, she recalled concerns about her life, including the day when he suffocated her and knocked her out.
WTSP reported that there were no visitors on the day he was executed.

When she was taken to the murderer\'s apartment, she counted the steps on the second floor.
When he asked her to use the bathroom, she made sure to leave fingerprints everywhere.
She knew she couldn\'t make him angry.
She asked him to show a hint of goodwill when he washed his hair after repeatedly raping her.
She asked what made him do what he did.

She told him that he looked good and maybe she could be his girlfriend.

After a long time, Norland was dressed.
