ATTORNEY GENERAL STEVE MARSHALL STATEMENT ON EXECUTION OF
WALTER LEROY MOODY, JR.
(MONTGOMERY) – Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall issued the following
statement following the execution of Walter Leroy Moody, Jr. in Holman Correctional
Facility in Atmore, Alabama.
“Nearly 30 years ago, 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Robert Vance was
brutally slain when a pipe bomb sent to his Birmingham home exploded. Walter Leroy
Moody was convicted of Judge Vance’s murder in both federal and state courts. Even
though he was also convicted of a similar pipe bomb death of a Georgia attorney,
Moody has spent the better part of three decades trying to avoid justice. Tonight, Mr.
Moody’s appeals finally came to a rightful end. Justice has been served.”
