In spite of this amount being set expressly to “avoid extravagance,” Rolling stretched his allotted funds to encompass an elaborate last meal that consisted of lobster tail, butterfly shrimp, baked potato, strawberry cheesecake, and sweet tea, according to Oxygen. Convicted serial killer Ted Bundy, who was also executed in Florida, had a very generous meal prepared for him. Since he made no specific requests he was given a default meal that included steak and eggs. He didn’t eat what he was given. Rolling did eat the meal, however, and did so as calmly as many of the other things he did in the hours before his death by lethal injection on October 25, 2006.

While the limits on Florida inmates might seem like too much or too little, the restrictions of other states can be even tighter. In Texas special requests aren’t even honored anymore after a perceived act of defiance from inmate Lawrence Russell Brewer. He ordered a copious amount of food that he refused once it was delivered, resulting in a policy change that limited last meals to only what the prisons themselves offer (via The Guardian).

Discovery+ will stream “Scream: The Real Story,” a two-hour edition of the series “Shock Docs,” starting January 14.
