For the last 35 days of his life, Robert was placed on “Death Watch” where
his every move was recorded and chronicled by prison officials.
Robert also kept a diary which he gave or mailed to his attorneys as installments.
He detailed the ironies and absurdities of life in prison. He
reveled in simple pleasures, such as a good meal or a sports event on
television. He longed for human contact from his last visitors,
and he touchingly tried to comfort his pod-mate, who doesn’t really
understand that he was going to his death.
