Troy Leon Gregg (April 22, 1948 – July 29, 1980) was the first condemned individual whose death sentence was upheld by the United States Supreme Court after the Court’s decision in Furman v. Georgia invalidated all previously enacted death penalty laws in the United States. He later participated in the first successful escape from a Georgia death row but was killed later that night.

    The wiki says he was beaten to death in a biker bar later that night. Wonder what the story behind that was.
