Product Information

Anthony Allen Shore is a serial killer who is responsible for the slayings of one woman and four girls. He operated from 1987 to 2000, and was known as the "Tourniquet Killer" since he used a ligature with either a toothbrush or bamboo stick to tighten or loosen the ligature. The instrument was similar to a twitch, which is used by farmers to control horses.

Despite Shore's confession of killing four people, and raping another, prosecutor Kelly Siegler decided to charge Shore for only Carmen Del Estrada's murder, since it contained the most forensic evidence. The jury found Shore guilty of capital murder and in the sentencing phase of the trial they learned that they had convicted a serial killer. During the sentencing phase, they put Shore's only surviving victim on the stand, who told a compelling story. Less than one hour later the jury sentenced Shore to death, which Shore, himself, asked for.

Shore was executed by lethal injection on January 18, 2018 and was the first person executed in the United States in 2018. He was 55 years old. Before the execution he confessed that "I made my peace" and his last words were "Ooh-ee, I can feel that!".

Friendship card with handwritten missive on the inside. Card is signed Tony twice. Original matching handwritten envelope is included.
