Tracy Beatty Wiki – Tracy Beatty Bio

Tracy Beatty a man convicted of strangling his mother and burying her body in his own backyard nearly 20 years ago was executed in Texas on Wednesday.

Tracy Beatty uttered “See you on the other side” before receiving a lethal injection of pentobarbital at Huntsville State Penitentiary.

The inmate was convicted of murdering her mother, Carolyn Click, who was only a year older than Beatty now, after an argument at her East Texas mobile home in November 2003.

Beatty’s lawyers had appealed his death sentence, arguing that he should not be executed because of his history of mental illness. However, the Supreme Court dismissed the appeal on Wednesday morning to stop the execution.

Beatty choked up and began to sob when the warden asked if he had any final words before he ended his life.

Strapped to a stretcher, he could barely get the words out when his voice cracked.

Texas Death Row Inmate & Found Guilty

Tracy Beatty was found guilty of killing her mother, Carolyn Click, after an argument at her home in November 2003.
“I just want to thank…” Beatty spoke directly to his wife who was watching from the viewing room behind glass. “I don’t want you to leave, honey. See you when you get there. Love you.”

He blew him a kiss and then offered his gratitude to his fellow death row inmates, naming several.

“I love you, brothers,” he said. “See you on the other side.”

Prosecutors said Beatty strangled her 62-year-old mother and then buried her body next to her mobile home in Whitehouse before spending her money on drugs and alcohol.

The mother and son had a “volatile and combative relationship,” prosecutors said. Click confided in a neighbor that Beatty had assaulted her multiple times prior to her murder. She said he had once “beaten her so severely that he left her for dead,” her neighbor Lieanna Wilkerson testified.

Beatty moved back in with Click a month before her death and was excited for her to return so they could have time to repair her relationship, Wilkerson said.

However, the couple began to argue daily, with Click asking her to move out at least twice, including right before she was killed, according to trial testimony.

“Several times [Beatty] had said that he just wanted to shut her up, that she just wanted to strangle her and shut her up,” Wilkerson testified.

In their petition to the courts to spare his life, Beatty’s legal team cited an expert opinion that the murderer was “clearly psychotic and has a complex paranoid delusional belief system” in which they believe correctional officers torture him with their “threatening voices” through a device in his ear.

The Supreme Court has not previously excluded people with severe mental illness from the death penalty, although it has prohibited the death sentence for the intellectually disabled.

Beatty was pronounced dead at 6:39 p.m. CT, becoming the fourth inmate to be executed in Texas this year and the 13th nationally.
