“I’ve always wanted to die on the gallows. It must be thrilling to be hanged.” So said Singapore national serviceman Sek Kim Wah, 24, and at Changi Prison, Singapore, on Friday, December 9th, 1988, his wish came true.

Together with an accomplice, Wah burgled the home of businessman Robert Hong, 61, beating him to death with a stool and strangling his wife Annie, 45, and their Filipino maid, Jovita Virador, 27, with nylon cords. The accomplice was sentenced to life imprisonment after being flogged, for aggravated burglary. Worldwide Hangings from True Crime Library.
