Christian Longo, 37, says he wants to do more to take responsibility for killing his family and dumping their bodies in coastal bays nearly a decade ago than simply accepting execution by lethal injection.

“Why go out and waste your organs when you have the potential to go out and save six to 12 lives?” reasons Longo, whose voice is measured and articulate on the phone from Oregon State Penitentiary cell DRU31 in Salem.

A lethal injection might render some organs unsuitable for transplant.

Now if they shot him in the head and took out his organs immediately, that would work.

Yes. Back of the head. Harvest the organs immediately whether the prisoner or his family want it or not.
