Martin Link - Missouri Death Row - Scheduled Execution for February 9, 2011

EXECUTED

Victims: Elissa Self-Braun

The Crime: Martin Link, 47, abducted Elissa Self-Braun near her home in the 3800 block of Humphrey Street. Her body was found four days later near the St. Francis River, more than 100 miles south of St. Louis.

She had been raped and strangled. DNA evidence tied Link to the case.

News: A Missouri man has been put to death for the 1991 killing of an 11-year-old St. Louis girl.

Martin Link died by injection just at 12:15 a.m. Wednesday at the Missouri state prison in Bonne Terre (Bon-Tair). It was the first execution in Missouri since May 2009 and just the second since 2006.

Link's fate was sealed when Gov. Jay Nixon on Monday denied clemency and the courts on Tuesday refused to halt the execution.

Elissa Self-Braun disappeared on Jan. 11, 1991, while walking to her school bus stop. Her body was found four days later along the St. Francis River, 135 miles south of St. Louis.

DNA evidence connected Link to the crime.

Last Meal: Not known..

Final Statement: He used his final words to criticize the death penalty.

'The state says killing is wrong,' Link wrote in a statement before the execution. 'So why do they do it? For revenge. Where is the closure? There is none.'
