Timothy James McVeigh was an American terrorist convicted for the detonation of explosives in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City — commonly known as The Oklahoma City Bombings. McVeigh, a US Army Vet, sought revenge on the federal government for its handling of the 1993 Waco siege, and the 1992 Ruby Ridge incident. After being arrested for driving without plates and illegal firearm possession, McVeigh was identified as the suspect responsible for the bombings. He was convicted of 11 federal counts and sentenced to death by lethal injection. McVeigh’s sentence was carried out substantially faster than usual (most death row inmates spend 15 years on death row; McVeigh spent 4) and he was executed on June 11, 2001. He said his only regret was not leveling the building.
His last meal was two pints of mint chocolate chip ice cream.
