Secretary James R. McDonough
Regarding the Execution of Angel Nieves Diaz
“At the direction of Governor Bush, I have appointed a team to conduct a thorough process review of the December 13 execution of Angel Nieves Diaz.
The team will interview all individuals present in the execution chamber during the procedure and review all pertinent information. Additionally, we have asked that the medical examiner proceed expeditiously with the autopsy of Mr. Diaz.
The team will be headed by Department of Corrections’ Assistant General Counsel Max Changus, and will include Bonita J. Sorensen, M.D., of the Florida Department of Health; Florida Department of Law Enforcement Assistant Commissioner Electra Bustle and Department of Corrections’ Assistant Secretary George Sapp.
This review will commence immediately. I look forward to their findings.”
