List Rules List includes prisoners sentenced to death and awaiting capital punishment by a federal court of the United States.

There are currently 6o inmates on federal death row, according to the Death Penalty Information Center. All have been sentenced to capital punishment for murder with special circumstances. Many killed children or multiple people at once, in horrific and brutal crimes. Others committed murders while in federal prison already, or committed murders on federal property. Some are famous for their crimes, like the perpetrator behind the Boston Marathon bombings. Others will spend the rest of their days in obscurity.

People on death row share a number of commonalities, which federal death row inmates have as well. They are overwhelmingly male (there is only one woman on federal death row). Texas has the most inmates on federal death row, in keeping with Texas having the largest death row of any state. And all of the inmates will wait years or decades for their execution.

Here are all of the inmates currently on federal death row. Please note that pictures aren't available for all inmates.
