Ray & Faye Copeland;

In October 1989, police descended on the Copeland farm with a search warrant, after a tip from an ex-employee put the Copeland’s on their radar. 

After a week and no discoveries, police were ready to give up. It was only upon searching a local barn that they found what they had come for; three bodies, all shot at point blank range in the back of the head, execution style. 

It was obvious to investigators that Ray was the primary offender, but Faye’s involvement became apparent when police discovered a quilt she had sewn out of the dead men’s clothing. 

Aged 76 and 69, Ray and Faye Copeland became the oldest couple ever sentenced to death in the US after being convicted on five counts of homicide.
