KIRTLAND, Ohio — On October 24, 2006, Jeffrey Lundgren, who was convicted of murdering a Missouri family, received a lethal injection at a correctional facility in Lucasville, Ohio.

Lundgren was originally from Independence, Missouri and claimed to be a prophet of God who killed the Avery family of five. He claimed the killing was a sacrifice demanded by a higher power.

Dennis and Cheryl Avery were a diligent and unassuming couple who resided in Independence, Missouri. They were devoted parents to their three daughters and deeply committed to their faith and church.

However, by September 1986, the Avery family had become entranced by Jeffrey Lundgren, a persuasive and influential figure with extreme religious convictions. He had a reputation for being a skilled manipulator.
