Attorney General Steve Marshall
Statement on Execution of Death Row Inmate
Christopher Lee Price
(MONTGOMERY) – Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall issued the following statement
concerning the execution of death row inmate Christopher Lee Price on Thursday:
“Tonight, the family of Pastor Bill Lynn, who was brutally murdered nearly 30 years ago, has
finally seen Lynn’s killer face justice. Christopher Price was put to death at Holman
Correctional Facility in Atmore, fighting until the very end to avoid facing the consequences of
his heinous crime.
“On December 22, 1991, Bill Lynn was wrapping Christmas gifts for his grandchildren when the
electricity in his home suddenly went out. Stepping outside to check the power box, Lynn was
ambushed, slashed, and stabbed with a sword and knife dozens of times. His killer, Christopher
Price, dodged his death sentence for the better part of three decades by employing much the
same strategy he has pursued today and tonight: desperately clinging to legal maneuverings to
avoid facing his just punishment. In the end, justice got the last word.
“Tonight, Pastor Lynn’s family can finally begin to seek peace and closure.”
