The condemned inmate took everyone by surprise when he started tearing up the holy book and eating it.
It took hours of chewing and swallowing small pieces of paper, but Morris ate the totality of the 1200-page book, including the cover.
According to Walter Henri, a prison guard,
“He kept tearing pieces from his Bible and eating them like they were potato chips!”
