Serial killer Anthony Allen Shore hailed from Houston, Texas, and he became known as the 'Tourniquet Killer' for strangling the life out of his victims with a home-made tourniquet. Between the years of 1986 and 1995, he allegedly murdered one young woman and three young girls, and he also s*xually assaulted them.

He was first married to Gina Lynn Worley, with whom he went on to have two daughters, Amber Shore and Tiffany Shore. After his divorce from Worley, he married another woman named Amy Lynch, who also went on to divorce him. Lynch found out that he tortured and s*xually abused his daughters, who were in his custody following his divorce from Gina Lynn Worley.

Reportedly, his first murder was in 1986 when he strangled a 15-year-old Laurie Trembley. Thereafter, in 1992, he s*xually assaulted and murdered 21-year-old Maria del Carmen Estrada by strangulation. After his arrest in 2003, he admitted to assaulting and murdering two other young girls, 9-year-old Diana Rebollar and 16-year-old Dana Sanchez.


How and when did Anthony Allen Shore die?

Anthony Allen Shore was reportedly arrested and convicted in 2003 after DNA evidence was discovered under the fingernails of one of his victims, 21-year-old Maria del Carmen Estrada. It connected him directly to the 1992 murder case, so Shore's trial began in 2004. On November 15, 2004, he received the death penalty from the court. His death sentence was executed with a fatal injection on January 18, 2018, when he was 55 years old.

Reportedly, his final words when he was put to death were:

"Oooh-ee! I can feel that,...burned."

Anthony Allen Shore also said in his final statement:

"No amount of words or apology could ever undo what I've done,...I wish I could undo the past, but it is what it is." (Via NBC News)
