Louisiana Death Row Watch

The images included right now are based on the slideshow here:

http://theadvocate.com/news/2839623-123/louisianas-death-row-inmates

However, some of the images in the carrossel are out of order, many of the images have captions giving credit to the source for the images, but no direct link to them so I can verify for myself – some have no source given at all.  There are some images here I question if they are accurate looking at the dates and ages etc. like Winthrop Earl Eaton.  So for now until I find out otherwise this it the way it stands.  I will try to find  more information and images etc.,  and try to verify images when  I can.
