Alabama jail officials tried to implement Hamm by lethal injection but needed to quit since medical employees could not discover a suitable capillary to administer the intravenous line to send out lethal chemical into his body. Hamm and the state reached an agreement that protected against more execution attempts, however he continued to be on death row at Holman Jail because of his funding sentence.

“Nature lastly afforded Doyle the sort of benevolence that he never obtained from the state, nor our society, at any moment in his life. May he currently rest in peace,” claimed Harcourt.
