Edmund Zagorski Forgoes Last Meal Before Thursday's Execution

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Edmund Zagorski has decided to forgo his last meal before his scheduled execution on Thursday.

The Tennessee Department of Correction said if he changes his mind his meal will be the same as the one provided to the other inmates at Riverbend Maximum Security Institution – Sloppy Joes, a wheat roll, pinto beans, coleslaw, a sugar cookie, and iced tea. 

Zagorski was moved to death watch on Tuesday. 

Zagorski has chosen the electric chair instead of the state's three-drug lethal injection protocol. However, a source with direct knowledge of the situation told NewsChannel 5 Tennessee Department of Corrections said that they will not use the Electric chair. They said it is too late to make the change. 

He was one of 33 inmates who filed a lawsuit, claiming the drug cocktail used in lethal injections causes the condemned to suffer. However, the Tennessee Supreme Court upheld the state’s lethal injection protocol.
