Troy Leon Gregg

Troy Leon Gregg gelang mit Komplizen der erste erfolgreiche Ausbruch aus einem Todestrakt im US-Staat Georgia. Er verstarb noch in der Nacht des Ausbruchs bei einer Kneipenschlägerei.

Troy Leon Gregg (April 22, 1948 – July 29, 1980) was the first condemned individual whose death sentence was upheld by the United States Supreme Court after the Court’s decision in Furman v. Georgia invalidated all previously enacted death penalty laws in the United States. He later participated in the first successful escape from a Georgia death row, but was killed later that night.
