Edward Schad

(Sentenced to death: Jan. 2, 1980) Edward Schad was sentenced to death for the 1978 murder of Lorimer Graves, 74, of Bisbee. On Aug. 1, 1978, Graves left Bisbee in a new Cadillac on a trip to Everett, Wash., to visit his sister. Eight days later, Graves’ badly decomposed body was discovered hidden in the brush just off U.S. 89 south of Prescott. Graves had been strangled with a rope that was still knotted around his neck. A month later, Schad was stopped for speeding in New York driving Graves’ Cadillac. Many of Graves’ personal belongings were in the car, according to prison records.
