Death row inmate eats an entire Bible as his last meal

Atmore, Alabama | When the prison staff asked 33-year Jeremy Morris if he wanted anything special for his last meal, he answered: “I just want a Bible”.

The prison guards of the William C. Holman Correctional Facility thought he wanted to pray and repent, so they gave him an old copy of the King James Bible.

Against all expectations, the condemned murderer began tearing up the holy book and eating it.

It took hours of chewing and swallowing small pieces of paper, but Mr. Morris ate the totality of the 1200-page book, including the cover.

Walter Henri, the prison guard who handed him the old and worn out Bible, says the inmate seemed to “savor every bite”.

“He kept tearing pieces from his Bible and eating them like they were potato chips!” 

Holman Prison director, Frank Davis, says the staff decided to let the prisoner eat the Bible because it didn’t violate the establishment’s “last meal policy”.


Director Davis says the guards were surprised to see Mr. Morris ingest the Bible, but did not feel the need to intervene.

In most states and various countries where the death penalty is legal, it’s customary to give sentenced prisoners a special last meal at their request.

Restrictions do apply, concerning mostly the legality, the accessibility and value of the meal.

Despite its unusual nature, Mr. Morris’ choice of meal was “locally accessible and worth less than 40$”, making it conform to the rules of Alabama correctional facilities.

Jeremy Morris is expected to be executed tomorrow for the killing of two Catholic nuns in 2007.

    Metal as FUCK!

  2. Maybe it was a reconciliation with God for the Killing off those 2 Nuns,
    He was Driven by his own desires to ingest the whole Bible as the Guards watched
    they said that Jeremy ate every Morsel of that Bible even the Covers could he have been possessed in Holiness for his Sins or was this a Biblical event that unfolded to eat the words that mankind lives by!

  3. This man is a coward. If he truly was working for Satan he would have worked hard to be a lawyer or politician. But no, he physically assaulted and murdered 2 weak vulnerable women.

    Satan is displeased.

  4. That is the funniest thing ive read all day. Wont he be shocked when hes dead and discovers there is no god or satan. Lol … loser…

  5. All the god fearing types, making a point. The guy has made his choices, you are not his judges by your own doctrines.
