You may know about that very fat prisoner on death row in Ohio. He weighs almost 5-hundred pounds. His attorneys are trying to delay further his execution for a murder that happened more than a quarter of a century ago. In their petition to the court, his defenders claim that 53-year-old Ronald Post is too fat for lethal injection..that it would cause their client a “tortuous and lingering death”. Post already has lingered 27 years after murdering a hotel desk clerk in 1985.
Too fat to die?
