A Final Word on the Marshall Gore Execution

As noted in yesterday's News Scan and my post, Marshall Gore was finally executed in Florida yesterday.  And his final words?  None.

David Ovalle has this story in the Miami Herald:

"I thought that was quite ironic, that he had nothing to say at the end," said retired Miami-Dade Detective Dave Simmons, who investigated Gore's slew of rapes. "He played the system for years faking insanity, saying outlandish things to judges and witnesses, and in his moment of truth, he had nothing to say for himself. He was the ultimate coward in the end."

As the relatives filed out of the gallery, Novick's sister, Pamela Novick, winked at journalists. Gore stabbed and beat Robyn Novick to death in March 1988, leaving her discarded corpse in a trash heap near Homestead.

Pamela Novick recalled her 30-year-old sister's "heart of gold" and "zest for life" and the horror of her body dumped "as if one was throwing out garbage."

Novick read a statement after the execution lamenting that Gore had lived for so long after her sister's death.

"My sister Robyn wasn't given a choice of how or when she wanted to die,'' she said. "She was violently murdered by a serial killer with no mercy and no appeals.''

Novick's elderly mother, Phyllis Novick, who lives in Ohio, did not attend Tuesday's execution. Neither did her father.

"Our dearest father, Alvin, had hoped to see this day. Unfortunately, he passed away too soon," Pamela Novick said.
