In 1938, Anna Antonio, a woman on death row for the murder of her husband, was known for her bizarre behavior in her cellmate. According to reports, Antonio would often ask her cellmate to leave the cell so she could be alone to talk to herself. When her cellmate refused to leave, Antonio would often become violent and start screaming in her cell. Despite her violent behavior, officials described her as being "mentally unstable" and "not fully accountable for her actions." Antonio was executed in 1938, leaving behind a legacy of strange behavior on death row.
