|Richard Mayo||Johnny Frank Garrett|
The state sought to impeach Garrett with an oral statement that he allegedly gave the police shortly after his arrest on November 9, 1981. Two police officers testified that, after they reduced Garrett's statement to writing, Garrett agreed that it was true but refused to sign it until after he consulted counsel. After consulting counsel, Garrett declined to sign the statement. In the statement attributed to Garrett by the police,
This reputed statement was simply the word of Police, To his dying day he professed he never made any such statement

In March, 2004, cold-case DNA testing identified Leoncio Perez Rueda as the rapist and murderer of Narnie Box Bryson, another elderly Amarillo victim killed four months prior to the murder of Sister Benz. Immediately following Sister Benz's murder, prosecutors and police were certain the two cases were committed by the same assailant. In both cases, the killer left behind a white shirt at the crime scene. In both cases, black curly head hairs were found on the victims and linked to Rueda. Previously unidentified fingerprints in Sister Benz's room were matched to Rueda. In both cases, the victims suffered matching cuts and stab wounds. And in both cases, witnesses identified dark-skinned men in white shirts at the scene shortly before the killings.
The men linked to Bryson's murder were initially arrested and identified by witnesses in the Sister Benz case, and in fact prosecutors originally planned to charge one of them with Sister Benz's murder. Leoncio Perez Rueda had been caught peeping in a window of another elderly woman two weeks before Sister Benz's death. Back in his native country, Cuba, Rueda was a former prison inmate who served a sentence for rape and murder. Upon his transfer to Texas for trial in the Bryson murder, Rueda was interviewed and admitted not only to the rape of Ms. Bryson, but to having also raped a nun in a later attack in Amarillo. He made the admissions on camera during an interview for the documentary film "The Last Word" detailing the trial and execution of Johnny Garrett. Also on camera, Rueda admitted to recognizing his own shirt in the police photo of the shirt left at the scene of Sister Benz's murder.
The fact that Johnny was only 17 years old when the crime he was accused of was committed and he had also been described by many human rights organizations as severely mentally handicapped, put the entire case into question. The state of Texas has come under heavy criticism for allowing both a juvenile and mentally handicapped individual to be executed.

Dear Mr. Hill,
In regard to Johnny Frank Garrett, please take a look at the documentary "The Last Word" concerning the case of Mr. Garrett. I think it will shed some new light on his conviction and convince you that an innocent man was put to death by the state of Texas. I was absolutely floored by some of the facts of his case and I think you will be too. Please sir take a look at the video, I think it might convince you to rewrite his bio. Thank you sir, I appreciate it.

I visited Betsy's gravesite this morning and jotted down what was shown on the headstone. The birth and death dates are shown as ...
"Jan.25,1916 Mar. 15, 2005". Please correct the birthdate. Also, the marriage date in your bio needs to be corrected to show March 27 instead of March 30 and her death date changed from the 16th to the 15th. Lastly, I have now supplied information to any visitors or photograhers on how to locate the gravesite. Would you please add this information to the LEFT side of her memorial? I added it to the right side as a "flower" but that might get "lost" over time. Thanks for making the corrections requested above. Tom Nelson (the sponsor of this memorial.) Of course, if you'd like to transfer ownership of this memorial to me, that would be just fine. Tom
