FAMOUS LAST MEALS FOR MURDERERS ON DEATH ROW - ENJOY! - REUBEN CANTU

Ruben Cantu
Charge: Robbery and murder that took place in San Antonio, Texas, in 1984
Year of execution: 1993

Cantu was 17 in 1984 when two youths broke into a house that was under construction in San Antonio and robbed and repeatedly shot two workmen who were sleeping there to protect the premises. One of the victims died.
Cantu was convicted and sentenced to death solely on the basis of an identification by the surviving victim, who had twice failed to identify Cantu from photo spreads

The case attracted little publicity as Cantu exhausted his appeals. Even his last request for a piece of bubble gum was denied.
Twelve years later, however, his story burst into the headlines when two witnesses told the Houston Chronicle that Cantu had not been involved in the crime.

FURTHER INFORMATION

Reuben Cantu's case is outlined reasonably fairly in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R
uben_Cantu
Leader of the Grey Eagles street gang, professional car thief by 15; older brothers both convicted on drug and theft charges.
In short, there was a murder/robbery in which he participated, not clear if he was the shooter or not. Case went cold. Later, he shot a plainclothes cop in a bar with witnesses for which he wasn't prosecuted due to a later police illegal search. Cop survived, and decided to reopen the cold case, 'finding' enough evidence to convict him on the earlier murder/robbery.
20 years later, his co defendant (who claimed Cantu'd been the murderer) said it was 'some other kid' - who had nothing more than a misdemeanor on his record. The surviving victim has recanted his oath-given testimony in the trial.
