Hernandez is the new poster boy for why the death penalty is essential for a civilized society. He began his violent, murdering ways at a very early age. His escape from a Mexican prison for murder and fleeing to the U.S. is often glossed over, but he was a murderer and an ILLEGAL alien. In this case, the Mexican government has backed away from previous claims involving murderous ILLEGAL aliens that he should be spared.

The victim of Ramiro’s crime was Glen H. Lich, a well respected educator and author from Texas. Dr. Lich was murdered by 10-11 blunt force blows to the head. The following is an obituary published shortly after his funeral:

Kerrville Mountain Sun
October 22, 1997

Glen E. Lich, 48, died October 14, 1997, at his home south of Kerrville. He was born in Fredericksburg.

Lich enjoyed a distinguished career in education and in regional and international affairs. He grew up in the Cypress Creek community in Kerr County, graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Southwestern University, Masters of Arts from Southwest Texas State University and the University of Texas, and a Doctor of Philosophy from Texas Christian University.

Between 1979 and 1993, he taught at Schreiner College and Baylor university and he held an endowed professorship at the University of Winnipeg. He is the author of numerous books including “The German Texans”, “Fred Gipson at Work” and “The Humanities and Public Issues”, as well as dozens of articles, reviews and reports for journals, handbooks, Congressional publications and national and international conferences.

He also served 26 years in the U.S Army, Army Reserves and National Guard. Between 1993 and 1995, he was instrumental in establishing the Partnership for Peace programs in Romania, Slovenia and the Czech Republic. In 1993, he established the Hill Country Institute, a private consultancy specializing in improving life of the Texas Hill Country through philanthropy, research and leadership.

Dr. Lich is survived by his wife, Lera Tyler Lich, his son, Stephen W. Lich-Tyler, his daughter Elizabeth E. Lich-Tyler, his father, Perry Lich of Cypress Creek, and his sister, Nancy Lich Jones of Cypress Creek.

Funeral services under the direction of Grimes Funeral Chapels, were held Saturday at St. Boniface Episcopal Church in Comfort, with interment at the Cypress Creek Cemetery. Memorials may be made to the Hill Country Project, c/o Ms. Lynn LeMeilleur, 305 Earl Garrett, Kerrville, Texas 78028.

Hernandez took away a gentleman of value and virtue in a brutal fashion. One of Dr. Lich’s books was Fred Gipson at Work. Fred Gipson is best known to many as the author of “Old Yeller.”

Hernandez also sexually brutalized Mrs. Lich repeatedly. Then, while waiting for his murder trial to begin he murdered a female jailer by stabbing her repeatedly with an improvised knife. The jailer has remained unidentified from all available sources.

It appears at this time that all options to halt Ramiro’s execution are exhausted. His attorneys have tried many different approaches, from their appeal in 2006 that he was “retarded,” to the most recent claims that the new pentobarbital should not be used, which the Board of Pardons and Paroles has denied.

I sincerely wish I could find an image of Dr. Lich, but have been unsuccessful. As a result, I will not post an image of the murdering, raping ILLEGAL alien Hernandez. Nothing can alter the pain and suffering of the Lich family, but perhaps Hernandez facing justice for what he has taken can offer some solace.

In just over 24 hours Hernandez will face justice for his crimes and Texas will be just a little safer.

  1. I see no pending appeals. He tried for a last minute Atkins claim but that was denied by the USSC on 3/31.

  2. Yup, this one is a real winner here… number one reason to.terminate mexican immigration. … well about 5 hours and there will be one mexican immigrant terminated. Via con Santana pedejo!!

  3. The night in 1997 when Ramiro Hernandez-Llanas bludgeoned to death a Kerrville rancher who employed him, then assaulted and terrorized the man’s widow at knifepoint, he mimicked injecting a syringe into his arm — an apparent reference to lethal injection.

    “It doesn’t matter to me,” Hernandez said as he made the gesture, Glen Lich’s widow recalled at his capital murder trial three years later.

    On Wednesday, prison officials in Huntsville are scheduled to carry out the sentence Hernandez predicted 17 years earlier.

    Authorities learned after the slaying that killing hadn’t been new to the defendant. He came to Kerrville after escaping prison in Mexico, where he was serving 25 years in prison for a 1989 bludgeoning death in his hometown of Nuevo Laredo.

    The Lich slaying drew so much media attention that a change of venue was granted, moving the trial to nearby Bandera County. A jury there took just five minutes to convict him and about an hour to determine he deserved to die for the crimes.

    Hernandez declined the Express-News’ recent request for a death row interview. The Lich family also declined further comment.

    Lich, an author who could read seven languages and speak three, was an eighth-generation Hill Country resident and had been a professor at both Schreiner College and Baylor University.

    “As a matter of fact he was one of my professors at Schreiner,” recalled assistant district attorney Lucy Wilke, who helped prosecute the capital murder case. “He was tough, I remember that — tough and brilliant.”

    Lich had degrees from the University of Texas, Southwestern University and Southwest Texas State University, as well as a doctorate in American literature from Texas Christian University.

    Hernandez, whom Lich nicknamed “El Toro,” first came into contact with the family in July 1997 when, for three weeks, he helped a carpenter make repairs around the property. In October, he called Lich looking for work and Lich agreed to let him live in a cabin on his property in exchange for help.

    Hernandez had been living and working on the ranch in southern Kerr County for about 10 days when he knocked on Lich’s door about 10 p.m. on Oct. 14. Under the pretence of an emergency, he lured Lich outside.

    Lera Tyler Lich never saw her husband of 26 years alive again.

    Hernandez used a piece of rebar to repeatedly hit Glen Lich in the head. He was found about 60 yards from his home.

    “There was blood everywhere,” Deputy Randell Sanders testified at trial. “I did not even recognize that there was a head.”

    Covered in blood, Hernandez then made his way inside the home and held Lich’s widow captive, promising her that if she gave him $15,000 he would return her husband.

    Lera Lich testified that Hernandez tied her to the bed, held a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her daughter and her elderly mother, who was sleeping in another room, if she didn’t cooperate with his demands.

    She was able to escape and run to a neighbor for help after he fell asleep.

    “It’s not like in town where you’ve got next-door neighbors, or small five-acre plots,” said Wilke, the prosecutor. “This is in the country. The nearest home was a considerable distance away.”

    Prior to the murder, Hernandez had raped at knifepoint a 15-year-old Kerrville girl. She testified at his capital murder trial that she knew him as the brother of her friend and accepted a ride from him to go get a hamburger.

    “But instead he took her to a ranch where he worked and sexually assaulted her,” Wilke said. “He threatened to kill her and her mother if she told anyone.”

    In 1998, while awaiting trial for the slaying, Hernandez assaulted a jailer when he didn’t get eggs for breakfast. He was sentenced to 40 years in prison for that crime. It took several other jailers armed with pepper spray to subdue the man and wrestle away a homemade shank, Kerr County Sheriff Rusty Hierholzer recently recalled.

    “Part of it was an escape attempt, and part of it is just he’s an evil, extremely violent man,” Hierholzer said. “Definitely, the wishes of the jury should be carried out.”

    After Hernandez was sent to death row, his appellate attorneys argued that he had diminished mental capacity and that his low IQ should serve as grounds to commute his sentence to life in prison. Appellate courts rejected the claim.

    “That was never in evidence presented at trial,” Wilke said of the low IQ suggestion. “The evidence presented at trial was that he was actually kind of a leader, in charge of his cell in prison, that he told others what to do. … It takes some intelligence to escape from prison.”

    More recently, Hernandez joined fellow death row inmate Tommy Lynn Sells in a lawsuit against the Texas Department of Criminal Justice that seeks to reveal the origin of the state’s newest batch of execution drugs. The litigation remains pending, but it didn’t stop Sells’ execution last week.

    After Hernandez’s sentence was assessed in 2000, the native Spanish speaker was confronted in court by some of Glen Lich’s relatives.

    Nancy Jones, the victim’s sister, asked the condemned killer to look at her. Then, like Hernandez did years earlier while still covered in blood, she alluded to his eventual execution.

    “Vaya con Dios,” she said. Go with God.

  4. Once again, the ExecutionWatch program attempts to minimize the evil of the condemned and insultingly so.

    I’m trying not to respond to the above. You remember this dipshit? I’m sure she posted at UG. r

  6. I think it is done. They are waiting for the Mexican consulate official to give a statement. Fuck him. Seriously, dude? He beat some one to death in Mexico, escapes, beats some one to death in the US, and commits a string of rapes — and this Mexican asshole is going to complain?? They couldn’t keep him in prison.

  7. Ha! That god awful bumper music they use is by Victoria Panetti, sister of Scott. It is rumored that his time is up.

  8. The death penalty is a complete waste of taxpayers money, there’s no gain at all to kill an inmate and everyone on death row is going to die eventually anyway so what’s the point of killing them??, what gives the government the right to take an inmate’s right?. Fuck Texas!!!, that fucking state sucks ass!!!
