A judge withdrew the execution warrant of Anthony Allen Shore in response to a request from prosecutors who want to further investigate an alleged scheme in which Shore says another death row inmate asked him to confess to his crime.

Shore, 55, would have been the seventh Texas inmate to be executed this year. When he was arrested in 2003, he confessed to killing a 21-year-old woman.

Maria del Carmen Estrada's murder went unsolved for more than a decade until a tiny particle collected from beneath her fingernail matched the DNA of Shore.


Anthony Shore is a pen friend of Hans from Sant´Egidio comunity in Germany. This friendship started with christmas greetings and a gift to Anthony. Since then a deep pen friendship started including more than 100 letters to one another.

Anthony was born in South Dakota. In 1992 he has committed a crime in Texas and has been sentenced to death.
For eight years his life on deathrow is accompagnied by the letters and the friendship of Hans. In many letters he has written that he loves life instead of the difficult situation on deathrow. He never stopped to thank for the friendship, which has grown with these letters. Hans continously told him that „You are my brother, I will never accept your execution.“ Anthony often repeats that this might be Gods will, but we do believe that the death penalty is never Gods will. 
Some weeks ago Anthony has written to Hans that he has received his date of execution, which is scheduled for October 18th.
There are only a few days left to send appeals and to ask for clemency.
