Recently I told the story of Gary Lee Sampson. He killed 3 people and was on death row. He died on December 21, 2021 from liver disease(likely from him getting a hepatitis C infection that was left untreated). Gary died at the age of 62. He was diagnosed when with liver disease in 2016 and from records on an old appeal, Gary argued that he should be taken off of death row because he was terminally ill. There was documentation in that appeal giving him only 3 years to live because he was at the end stage of his liver disease. That appeal was filed when Gary was 55 years old. Obviously the death sentence was still upheld and he finished the rest of his days on death row.
