Texas Execution Information Center


These pages will direct you to places where you can learn more about recent and upcoming Texas executions.


Texas Department of Criminal Justice

The Texas Department of Criminal Justice maintains an excellent web site with information about all executions that have been performed in Texas since 1982.


Other Official Resources

These state and federal web sites contain official documents pertaining to death penalty cases, often in very great detail.


National and State News

Each of these sources usually reports on every execution in the state.


Local News

Except for the Huntsville Item, Texas newspapers generally rely on the Associated Press for their statewide execution coverage. However, when the story has a local interest (e.g. because the crime was committed there), local newspapers often do their own reporting. A partial list of newspapers is provided below. If you know which county the offense ocurred in, you can use your browser's "Find" feature to find a newspaper that covers that area.
