1994 Eastlake killer put to death
After 18 years on death row, Fredrick Treesh apologizes to his victim's family
by WKSU's STATEHOUSE CORRESPONDENT JO INGLES


Reporter

In The Region:

A man convicted of killing an Eastlake adult book store security guard was put to death this morning.

Frederick Treesh was convicted of the crime in 1994, ending an alleged six-state crime rampage. After he shot the guard, he had a shootout with police.

Treesh said his cocaine addiction is what caused him to kill when he asked for clemency from the Ohio Parole Board and Gov. Kasich earlier this year. But that clemency was denied.

The Associated Press’s Andrew Welsh Huggins witnessed the lethal injection at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility this morning and says Treesh apologized to the family of the Eastlake victim in some final statements.

“He did apologize for the death of Henry Dupree, the security guard, and he said he was sorry about what happened for his family," Huggins said. "He then said, in a couple of rambling things, that there was no such thing as closure, that closure was something you got when you read a book and put it on the shelf. He said something along the lines that if you want to go ahead and murder me, just say it. And then he thanked his attorney and one of his friends and ended his last statement.”

Treesh was the 50th inmate to be put to death since the state resumed executions in 1999. Treesh was never prosecuted for the crimes he allegedly committed in other states.
