The Life and Times of Guy Stephen Alexander: Born August 20, 1959

What I am about to disclose to you is the actual life and experiences of a kid growing up in Houston, the youngest and the only one who ever went to prison and to Texas death row for a crime he committed back in January of 1989. Spent 2 and a half decades on death row, later was taken off. But allow me to give you a view of my life before 1989.

I grew up at first in the southwest part of Houston, but I also ventured around and even lived in San Diego, California, and Alabama.

The story begins 1965. I was 5 years old. It was a cold and drizzly day. We had a dog named Gypsy, a female beagle that had gotten pregnant. I vaguely remember, but where I came in was when she wasn't happy. The pups died and we buried them in the ditch behind our house. Later on, Gypsy couldn't live without her babies so she ran out into the street. Across the street is an elementary school called Cynthia Ann Parker. The street was packed with cars. She got ran over.

A maid at that time, whom was helping my mother take care of her mother who later passed on. The ditch behind us became us boys' playground. I say us boys: my older brothers, 2 of them. The area we lived in, you'd think having a school that we'd have our share of friends. But that wasn't the case. All but myself attended the school. I later on was placed into a special ed. class. Throughout my 12 years of schooling, I went to 2 other schools before finally being allowed to go and graduate from the school my other siblings before me graduated.

I know this might sound boring, but allow me to thicken the plot. There are other juicier parts. I not only got married, but I also have a son whom I haven't seen in over 30 years. More on that later.

See, having 2 older siblings fueled my need for porno. Back in the '60s and '70s, magazines were the name of the game. We didn't have videos or cellphones. No Internet. so to entertain yourself, it was magazines. I was under 10. That's the age...?

I'll continue this next page, this being page one. If you wish to give me input, write me:

That is a sad first memory- learning of the death of a litter of puppies and then having your dog hit by a car. I'm sorry to hear that you had to deal with such adult issues at such a young age. -sbz

Guy, I tried to email you a couple of years ago but I don't think it ever went thru. I was a stranger who attended your trial back when I was in college (prior to going to law school). I remember meeting your lawyers, the Prosecutors and the Judge. I attended every day of your trial including the sentencing phase. I attended the trial with my girlfriend/fiancee...we later married and attended law school but divorced in 1995 before we graduated law school. I practiced law approximately 10 years before going into business... but came out of legal retirement and defended a murder charge in New Mexico about 5 years ago. I won an acquittal in fact- my one and only criminal trial. Over the decades I would look up your case and was surprised when you were taken off death row. I read the opinion and could definitely remember the lack of defense your attorneys put up in both phases.

I'm not sure what I'm expecting by writing you but just thought I'd reach out and see how you were. It's truly amazing to think that 3 decades have passed. I was 21 at the time of your trial and today I'm 51. I can not imagine how your life has been these years. I would be interested in hearing what your life has been like. I'll wait to see how this message goes before writing more.
