Missouri Schedules June 6 Execution Date

Michael Tisius

The Missouri Supreme Court has set the execution date for convicted murderer Michael Tisius for June 6, 2023. Tisius, who was convicted of killing two prison guards during an attempt to escape from custody, has been on Missouri’s death row since October 2001. As is the case with each Missouri death row inmate, the Missouri Catholic Conference intends to submit a clemency letter to the governor on the inmate’s behalf, as well as organize a respectful protest outside the governor’s office on the day of the execution. 

The Catholic Church is strongly opposed to the death penalty because it disregards the sanctity and dignity of human life. If you would like to contact Governor Parson regarding Mr. Tisius’ execution, you can reach his office via phone at (573)751-3222 or email him here.
