Florida Executes Richard “Ric Ric” Henyard Convicted of Raping and Killing Two Young Sisters


Florida provides the cure and justice for Richard Henyard ever raping or killing again while God provides the peace.

The state of Florida has executed 34 year old, convicted rapists and murderer Richard “Ric Ric” Henyard. Richard Henyard had been convicted for the rape and murder of two sisters, 7 year old Jamilya Lewis and 3 year Jasmine Lewis. Read the accounts below and one can only take from this heinous crime that justice has finally been served in more ways than one both physically and spiritually.

Henyard and a younger accomplice carjacked Dorothy Lewis and her daughters outside a grocery store in the central Florida town of Eustis on the night of Jan. 30, 1993. Henyard, then 18, raped Lewis and then shot her multiple times at close range, but she survived. He then participated in the shooting deaths of her daughters after they cried out for their mother.

Lewis and her daughters had gone to a Winn-Dixie about 10 p.m. when they were carjacked by Henyard and 14-year-old Alfonza Smalls.

Smalls repeatedly demanded that Lewis “shut the girls up” because they were crying.

At one point, Lewis beseeched Jesus for help and Henyard replied, “This ain’t Jesus, this is Satan.”

Henyard and Smalls raped Lewis before Henyard shot her in the leg, neck, mouth and between the eyes. She was rolled off the side of the road and left for dead.

As they were driven away by Henyard and Smalls, the girls yelled: “I want my Mommy! Mommy, Mommy!”

A short time later, the girls were taken from the car and killed with gunshot wounds to the head.

Through the love of God all things are possible, no matter how difficult. People wonder how families can ever make it through such devastating situations. The brutal murder of children where when Dorothy Lewis prayed to God that she and her children be saved, she was greeted with the following comment: At one point, Lewis beseeched Jesus for help and Henyard replied, “This ain’t Jesus, this is Satan.” However, in the end through Dorothy Lewis’ faith … she was victorious through the Love of God.

“Today, I can truly say that I am no longer a victim, but I am victorious through the love of God,” Lewis, now 51, wrote on a Web site, www.prayerforsexualtrauma.org.

      On topic – Way to go Florida for carrying out the death penalty again !! :-) We must patiently wait on Orlando LE to get all of their duckies in a row, arrest/charge Casey with Caylee’s murder, and hope it’s only a matter of time before she meets the same fate as “Ric Ric”…
