Manuel Pardo, a 56-year-old former Florida police officer convicted of murdering nine people in a 1986 rampage, was executed in December 2012 by lethal injection. Officials said most of Pardo's victims were involved with drugs and were killed over the span of three months. Pardo contended that he was doing the world a favor by killing them in 1986. Pardo was dubbed the "Death Row Romeo" after he corresponded with dozens of women and persuaded many to send him money.
