Missourians Prepare to Go "On Watch" for Michael Tisius
(Missouri) - Michael Andrew Tisius is scheduled to be executed by the State of Missouri on June 6th at 6:00 pm at ERDCC Prison in Bonne Terre, MO, for the 2000 murders of Jason Acton and Leon Eagly in Randolph County. Michael was 19 years old at the time of the crime and experienced a life of abuse and trauma. Throughout the decades of incarceration Michael has shown great remorse for the crime he committed. Michael is a beloved community member; his talent and creativity have touched the lives of many.
