A prison official said Landrigan acknowledged his home state of Arizona before he died.

"His last words were, 'Well I'd like to say thank you to my family for being here and all of my friends,'" according to the prison official.  Landrigan finished off by adding, "Boomer sooner."

An eyewitness to the execution told reporters, "He didn't move during the procedure that I could see.  His lips parted slightly once...he was unconscious."

This is the first execution Arizona has carried out since 2007.
