Birth: Mar. 22, 1968
Death: Mar. 1, 2000

Convicted in the November 1989 robbery and murder of Helen Bass. Bass was killed inside her home. She was beaten with a lamp and rifle, stabbed in the neck and then shot in the head. Her body was found on her bed, where she had been sexually assaulted prior to her death. Barnes stole a .32 caliber pistol and an undetermined amount of money from the home. He was later observed trying to sell the stolen gun to different people.

Last Statement:
I'd like to send great love to all my family members, my supporters, my attorneys. They have all supported me throughout this. I thank you for proving my innocence, although it has not been acknowledged by the courts. May you continue in the struggle and may you change all that's being done here today and in the past. Life has not been that good to me, but I believe that now, after meeting so many people who support me in this, that all things will come to an end, and may this be fruit of better judgments for the future. That's all I have to say.

Cause of Death: Executed by Lethal Injection in the State of Texas.
