Federal Government Executes Dustin Higgs for Role in 1996 Prince George’s County Triple-Murder

TERRE HAUTE, IND — The Trump Administration executed its thirteenth and final inmate early Saturday morning for his role in the killing of three women on the Patuxent Research Refuge in Maryland, which is federal property. The mere location of the crime resulted in the murders becoming a federal case, instead of being overseen by the state of Maryland.

The inmate in question was Dustin John Higgs, 48, born in Poughkeepsie, New York.
