Pentobarbital Source for TDCJ Revealed

Published on October 03, 2013 by Larry Crippen

In response to a Freedom of Information request from the Associated Press, TDCJ has made documents available which show they bought eight vials of the execution drug pentobarbital in September through a Houston suburban compounding pharmacy.

TDCJ’s inventory of pentobarbital expired in September, and officials until now had not revealed where they were getting it.

An invoice shows that the Huntsville Unit’s warden purchased eight 2.5 gram vials of the drug on September 16th.  Recently, several pharmaceutical companies had refused to sell the drug for use in executions.
