Family Shocked When Killer Utters THESE Last Words to Them


There is no question that Ricky Gray is a special kind of killer. You see, he is an individual whose crime was so heinous that only the ultimate punishment would do. Although he was executed in Virginia for the god-awful crime of killing two children and their parents as they were preparing for a New Year’s Eve party, he unfortunately got the last word in:

The Killers Final Words

When he was executed at the Greensville Correctional Center in Jarratt, Virginia, he was asked if he had any last words. He simply replied, “Nope”, and that was that.

The crime that sent Ricky Gray to death row was the murder of nine-year-old Stella Harvey and her four-year-old sister Ruby and their parents, Bryan and Kathryn Harvey. Bryan was actually a member of a rock band called House of Freaks and Kathryn co-owned a toy store called World of Mirth. What Mr. Gray did to them was totally senseless.

First of all, after he illegally entered the residence with his nephew Ray Dandridge, he led each and every family member to the basement of the home. Once down there, he methodically slashed the throats of the mom and dad and the children, and to make matters worse, he bludgeoned them to death with a hammer.

This was simply a robbery gone bad, but Gray and Dadridge totally massacred this family, and for what? All they got out of it was a computer, some cookies, and a wedding ring.

Lethal Injection

Because of his morbid activities, Gray was executed by lethal injection even though some felt that the procedure took longer than normal. Thus, some of these bleeding hearts were concerned about the drugs being used for the process.

Gray was the first prisoner in Virginia to be executed by the three-drug cocktail of Potassium Chloride, Rocuronium Bromide, and Midazolam. Naturally, Gray’s attorneys challenged this cocktail, with even one of them saying that a firing squad would have been more humane.

Of course, there are other critics of the drugs that were used in Gray’s execution, and some even claim that Midazolam has been problematic in other executions. Some claim that the drug causes a painful death because it cannot render the person unconscious. Well, risk of complications or not, Gray didn’t show any mercy toward the family he massacred, now did he?

Killer Leaves Final Statement With His Attorney

Although he didn’t leave a final statement, he did leave a statement through his attorney, Elizabeth Peiffer, who said that he had been trying “to make amends as much as possible and make life better for other people.”

The statement read in part: “I have stolen birthdays, Easters, Christmases, Thanksgivings, graduations, weddings, and many other things from these people. There is truly no way for me to make up for that. I’m sorry they were a victim of my despair.” He should have thought about all of this before that terrible night even happened in the first place.

What do you think about this killer’ choice of last words?


  1. Gray’s attorneys challenged this $10,000 lethal cocktail, with even one of them saying that a firing squad would have been more humane. I agree 4 blanks and 1 real bullet… Cost to taxpayer $3.00.

  2. Well, gee, it takes time t o kill four people. Slicing someone’s throat means they bleed to death slowly so that takes time. Than it sounds like he got tired of waiting for all their deaths so he used a hammer which also takes time, you usually have to hit a few times in a few spots to finish a person when destroying a head. Wow, all the time using more and more violence with his physical body and arms and a hammer. So the drug used on him supposedly had his brain alive and he knew he was being killed. Gee, too bad he found out what it felt like when two adults and two kids knew they and three others they loved were dying for a long time and in a tremendous amount of pain. Being killed violently is a lot of pain, using a drug that kills within seconds is not violent and not a lot of pain like his victims endured which he actually deserved.

  3. For the vast majority of us it’s sad but true that we will show remorse after we’ve made a bad, or even tragic, mistake. Will God accept true repentance and turning to Him? Yes, it’s the foundation of His message to us.

    Yet, as the Scriptures say, that does not shield us for the earthly punishment we deserve. So all I can say for Gray is that I hope and pray he found the Lord.

  4. He didn’t write that statement about stealing their Christmases etc. He was trash and could never have thought on such a human or humane level. If he had written such a statement his last words would have been ‘I’m sorry’. His lawyer wrote that statement.

  5. I don’t have the slightest bit of sympathy for Ricky Gray, and I am fairly sure that he is now residing in Hell ! What he did to that poor family was EVIL, any way that you look at it. He SHOULD have been executed a LONG time ago !

  6. He will have plenty of time in Hell to think about them.Trash like that has no soul. They are spit out of hell. Was there a lot of rioting , looting and arson over this? How about minute by minute Fake news coverage? I am so sorry for this family , that a sub human animals came into their home and took their lives. Should have slit his throat and beat him with a hammer. Instead he get the needle. Easy way out

  7. By the way, I don’t remember any coverage of the riots that ensued when it was discovered that a “person of color” murdered this family. Of am I mistaken?
