UPDATE II (4-26-12): He’s good and dead. But mostly just dead.
Adams took about a dozen breaths, then began wheezing and snoring. Eventually, he became still. He was pronounced dead at 6:25 p.m. CDT, nine minutes after the lethal drugs began to flow into his body.
NOTE — While a federal judge has granted a reprieve and transferred the appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, as of this time, the execution is still scheduled, so I’m going to go ahead and publish the Execution Watch post now, however the Texas attorney general’s office is appealing and asking the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to remove the stay of execution.
UPDATE (4-25-12) — Well that didn’t last long. The The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has lifted the reprieve. I guess Bunky and Linda are going to have to cancel their honeymoon plans after all.
- Thug: Beunka Adams (19 at time of offense)
- Date of Execution: April 26, 2012, sometime shortly after 6:00 pm HTT
- Date of Crime: September 2, 2002
- Victim(s): Kenneth Vandever (37)
- Last Meal: Same shit salad being fed to every other thug on the row that day
- Final Words: “I really hate things turned out the way they did. For everybody involved, I don’t think any good came out of it.”
Beunka isn’t just your run of the mill sick, murderous piece of shit. He’s also a vile and sadistic animal.
He and his partner Richard Cobb kidnapped two young women (Candace Driver and Nikki Dement) who were working at a convenience store in Rusk, Texas. They also kidnapped mentally handicapped customer Kenneth Vandever.
Adams and Cobbs then drove stole one of the girl’s car, drove them in the trunk to a remote location where Adams raped Dement. And then it got worse:
The women then heard a single gunshot. (Adams) asked, “did we get anybody?” And Candace said, “No.” Shortly thereafter, a second shot was fired, and Kenneth cried out, “They shot me.” Kenneth Vandever died from the gunshot wound. Seconds later, Candace heard another shot, and Nikki fell forward. Candace fell forward as well, pretending to be hit. (Adams) approached Candace and asked her if she was bleeding. He was carrying the shotgun. Candace did not immediately answer in the hope that (Adams) would believe she had been killed. (Adams) then said, “Are you bleeding?” You better answer me. I’ll shoot you in the face if you don’t answer me.” When Candace said, “No, no, I’m not bleeding,” (Adams) shot her in the face, hitting her lip.
(Adams) and Cobb then turned to Nikki, asking her the same questions. (Adams) kicked Nikki for about a minute, joined by Cobb. Then they picked her up by her hair and held a lighter to her face to see if she was still alive. Candace feigned death for fear of being shot again. She heard Cobb say about Nikki, “She’s dead. Let’s go.” That was the only time that Candace ever heard Cobb speak. After (Adams) and Cobb left, Candace got up and ran barefooted down the deserted country road and banged on the door of the first house she saw.
There simply is no “rehabilitating” a sick and rabid animal who is capable of that kind of remorseless evil. There is only one way to deal with a rabid animal — and that’s to put it down. And sometime just after 6:00 p.m. HTT, Beunka Adamas will be put down much more humanely than most dogs even get.
Get Ready for the Crazy
Adams has one of the most rabid Death Row Fetishist followings of any thug on the row. And his family appears to be be as mentally unstable as their baby boy Bunky. So I expect the comments to this thread to be especially entertaining.
As one commenter noted on another death row thread:
Some whackjob from Australia is flying in to marry Beunka Adams. More proof that these women use death row as a match making service. May also explain why there was such a catfight between her and one of his other groupies earlier this year. Meow.
She’s begging for money to hire a new atty (too late) or to pay for funeral expenses (she’s marrying him; she should pay for it).
In their world, I’m sure it is a real status symbol to be married or the widow of a murderer. ln the real world, it is called a sign of mental illness.
The loons had agreed to go on a hungar strike. All ten of them for one day. Yeah, that will stop an execution.
Beunka admits that he took part in the robbery and kidnapping. But claims he did not actually pull the trigger that killed Vandever. And that is the gist of their defense of this murderous piece of shit. Unfortunately for them (and him), even if that were true (and it might be, given Cobb’s own confession that he pulled the trigger on the shot that killed Vandever — only because Adams threatened to kill Cobbs if he didn’t) he’d still be just as guilty and just as eligiblefor the death penalty under the law of parties, Tex. Penal Code Ann. § 7.02.
Therefore, the jury could find Adams guilty of capital murder even if they found that Cobb, not Adams, fired the shot that killed Vandever. Because Adams was convicted under the law of parties, the jury was required to answer an additional special issue regarding Adams’s intent during the sentencing phase:
Do you find from the evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that BEUNKA ADAMS, the defendant himself, actually caused the death of KENNETH WAYNE VANDEVER, the deceased, on the occasion in question, or, if he did not actually cause the deceased’s death, that he intended to kill the deceased or another or that he anticipated that a human life would be taken?
That “or” statement means that Beunka is guilty of capital murder no matter which one of these animals actually pulled the trigger that killed Vandever.
