Serial Killer - Faryion Edward Wardrip
Faryion Edward Wardrip is an American serial killer who raped and murdered five women in Wichita Falls, Texas and the surrounding counties from 1984 to 1986. In 1999, Wardrip was sentenced to death for the murder and three life terms for the other killings. In 2008, a federal magistrate recommended that the death penalty be overturned because Wardrip received ineffective defence in his trial. On June 14, 2011, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court ruling that ordered the State of Texas to either give Wardrip a new sentencing trial, or agree to give him a life sentence. The case will be sent back to the U.S. District Court for reconsideration. Wardrip remains on death row at Polunsky Unit in Livingston.
