Creeks, age 33 and already a convicted murder, was executed at Folsom State Prison. Earlier in the year he, along with two other inmates, escaped from their cells in the prison's dungeon and tried to cut their way through the bars to freedom by means of two hacksaws. Creeks shot guard Frank Maher who died 11 days later from his wound. The immates never made it outside the prison walls and were quickly recaptured.
