The triple execution took place at the Cummins Unit, seen here in a photo from 2016.

In 1994, Arkansas conducted three executions on the same day. Randy Dixon, with the David and Barbara Pryor Center for Arkansas Oral and Visual History, uses archives from a newscast from that day and a contemporsry interview to examine how that day unfolded.

Kyle Kellams is KUAF's news director and host of Ozarks at Large.
