Texas death row inmate plucks out eye, eats it

By MICHAEL GRACZYK Associated Press

Jan. 9, 2009, 11:27AM

A Texas death row inmate with a history of mental problems pulled out his only good eye, authorities said today.

Andre Thomas told officers he ate it.

Thomas, 25, was arrested for the fatal stabbings of his estranged wife, their young son and her 13-month-old daughter in March 2004. Their hearts also had been ripped out. He was convicted and condemned for the infant's death.

While in the Grayson County Jail in Sherman, Thomas similarly had plucked out his right eye before his trial later in 2004. A judge subsequently ruled he was competent to stand trial.

A death-row officer at the Polunsky Unit of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice found Thomas in his cell with blood on his face and had him taken to the unit infirmary.

""Thomas said he pulled out his eye and subsequently ingested it," agency spokesman Jason Clark said today.

Thomas was treated at East Texas Medical Center in Tyler after the Dec. 9 incident. Then he was transferred and remains at the Jester Unit, a prison psychiatric facility near Richmond southwest of Houston.

"He will finally be able to receive the mental health care that we had wanted and begged for from day 1," Bobbie Peterson-Cate, Thomas' trial attorney, told the Sherman Herald Democrat. "He is insane and mentally ill. It is exactly the same reason he pulled out the last one."

At his trial, defense lawyers also argued he suffered from alcohol and drug abuse.

Thomas does not have an execution date.

The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals in October upheld his conviction and death sentence for the death of 13-month-old Leyha Marie Hughes. Also killed March 27, 2004, were his wife, Laura Christine Boren, 20, and their son, 4-year-old Andre Lee.

Thomas, from Texoma, walked into the Sherman Police Department and told a dispatcher he had just murdered the three and had stabbed himself in the chest.

Thomas told police how he put his victims' hearts in his pocket and left their apartment, took them home, put them in a plastic bag and threw them in the trash.

Court documents described the three victims as having "large, gaping wounds to their chests."

He should've tried his ####### to see if it tastes like sausages.

The state of Texas hasn't killed him yet, so there is still a chance he will try your recipe. However, I'm not so sure it is as easy to rip a ####### loose as it is to pluck out an eye. If anyone can do it, I think this guy probably can. He sounds like a real trooper. Not to mention he is oblivious to extreme pain.

Texas puts to death the mentally ill?

Mentally ill people aren't always insane. Mental illness does not exclude someone from being executed for their crime(s). Apparently this guy was not legally insane at the time he committed the capital offense of murder that landed him on death row.

People mutilate themselves with tatoos, piercings, etc. Are they insane? Some people are depressed. Are they insane? None of that disqualifies someone from being executed for committing a capital offense.

This guy might have "issues", but that doesn't make him insane.

I recommend shock treatment.


"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

I'm sorry, but if you rip an eye out of your own head, and cannibalise yourself and others - you're crazier than a $hit house rat.

That the guy wasn't deemed legally insane at the time of his crime is obviously makes it a moot point, but lets face it - Texas (and Florida for that matter) is notorious for rejecting insane defences on capital cases. Florida was the State that tried to medicate people on death row in order to execute them.

No kidding. This guy is criminally insane and should be kept in a mental hospital, not death row.

Talk about a freak show act!

If this guy had a little sense he could have worked this "eye plucking" talent into a web-cam/ pay perview thing and made enough money to hire, "real" lawyers and beaten the rap on that messy situation with killing his family.

He's not sane. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that.
