AN EYE FOR AN EYE
A special edition of Yesterday’s News exploring the criminal justice system at its most extreme: Inflicting the death penalty
San Quentin Executioner Amos Lunt
In this episode we explore a different point of view of capital punishment, a behind the scenes look at the gallows of San Quentin Prison from the hangman.
One of the minor characters in the episode “The Belle in the Belfry” was the hangman, Amos Lunt, who seemed quite shaken by the event and was reported as “seeing spooks”.
That was enough to get me to look a little deeper into Amos Lunt and his descent into madness.
