Edward Edwards, sentenced to death row, dies of natural causes
Was to have been executed for killing his foster son in Geauga County
(Columbus) (AP) — An elderly con man, formerly of Geauga County, who pleaded guilty to five slayings in Ohio and Wisconsin has died in prison of natural causes.
Ohio prisons spokesman Carlo LoParo tells The Associated Press that 77-year-old Edward Edwards died Thursday night at the Corrections Medical Center in Columbus, where he was being held.
Edwards' death was first reported Friday by the Daily Jefferson County Union newspaper in Fort Atkinson, Wis.
The Louisville, Ky., man was sentenced to death after he admitted killing his 25-year-old foster son in 1996. He previously told the Associated Press he confessed to killing Dannie Boy Edwards outside Burton, in Geauga County, because he wanted the death penalty.
Edwards also pleaded guilty to killing 21-year-old Bill Lavaco of Doylestown and 18-year-old Judith Straub of Sterling in 1977. In Wisconsin, he admitted killing 19-year-old sweethearts Tim Hack and Kelly Drew, who disappeared from a wedding reception in 1980.
