The last words spoken by criminals before execution stand as the final statements from these convicted offenders, having been uttered moments before their deaths. Much like the statements made by famous people in their suicide notes, these are the famous last words before execution that others will remember these souls by for eternity. There are funny, crazy, and of course, sad death row inmates last words. 

Many of these convicted criminals acted similarly in their famous last quotes as they did in life. Some joked around with the press and other bystanders, others proclaimed their innocence for the hundredth time, and certain individuals added standard goodbyes as they told their mothers they loved them. It's hard to debate the funniest last words, since the entire exercise is morbid. However, when it comes to famous last words of executed criminals, those of Aileen Wuornos were certainly memorable. Other death row last words, like those of Thomas J. Grasso, were to complain about their final meal, or their treatment in the prisons. 

Whatever the words used, and whatever the manner of execution, these famous last words spoken by criminals remain as the final memories of these offenders.
