Okay, so perhaps “famous” is overstating the issue a bit, but the final statement given by female serial killer Aileen Wuornos just prior to being put to death today in Florida really puts to rest the question of her sanity.
“I’d just like to say I’m sailing with the Rock and I’ll be back like Independence Day with Jesus, June 6, like the movie, big mothership and all. I’ll be back,’’ Wuornos said. The Rock is a Biblical reference to Jesus.
A stay of her execution was ordered pending a mental exam, but was lifted last week after three psychiatrists who interviewed her concluded that she understood she would die and why she was being executed. I don’t know why, but I find it all to be particularly amusing.
