Florida executes convicted murder Donald Dillbeck

Florida State executed Donald Dillbeck on Thursday; a man convicted of stabbing a woman to death in a Tallahassee shopping mall parking lot in 1990.  


 


Donald Dillbeck, 59, was pronounced dead at 6:13 p.m. after receiving death by lethal injection, Governor Ron DeSantis said. Gillbeck was convicted of murdering Faye Vann, near Florida’s State Capital. His execution marks the fourth execution under Governor DeSantis’ term.


 


Dillbeck was also sentenced in 1979 for the murder of Lee County Deputy Lynn Hall. On April 11, 1979, the Lee County Sheriff's Department received a complaint of a suspicious person at a closed beach park in Fort Myers Beach, Florida.  


 


Upon seeing Deputy Lynn Hall's arrival, Dillbeck fled from his car, leading Hall to chase and tackle him. During their struggle, Dillbeck pulled Hall’s service pistol from his holster and shot him dead. Dillbeck fled the scene and was later caught on June 6th of that year. He was then sentenced to life in prison.


 


However, Dillbeck escaped from prison on February 9, 1983. He was later captured and received an additional sentence of a year. 


 


Dillbeck was working at a Quincy Vocational Center on June 22, 1990.  Providing catering services with other inmates. When no one was looking Dillbeck stole a knife and walked off-site. He found himself in Tallahassee, where he approached Faye Vann attempting to carjack her. Vann fought back, and that’s when Dillbeck stabbed her multiple times with the knife, killing her. Dillbeck was caught after he crashed her car.

During his sentencing, Dillbeck told the Judge that he was sorry for what happened. He didn’t wish to do it, not because he was standing there, but because it happened. He also told the judge that he suffered from child negligence and brain damage.


 


Dillbeck’s final words before his execution were: “I know I hurt people when I was young. I really messed up.” Dillbeck continued by criticizing Governor DeSantis saying that he’s done worse than what he did.


 


Faye Vann’s children wrote a letter to Florida State Prison; that was released after Dillbeck’s Execution: “11, 932 days ago, Donald Dillbeck, brutally attacked and killed our mother. We were robbed of years of memories with her, and it has been very painful ever since then.” 


 


 


 


Dillbeck's execution was preceded by Gary Ray Bowles, a convicted serial killer, who was executed in 2019.
