Father Morton was a Roman Catholic priest. In 1962, he served as a witness at the execution of convicted killer, the immortal,  Quentin Barnes.

When Quentin Barnes was about to be sent to the electric chair for killing two young women, Barnes grabbed Father's Morton's crucifix and said "Something to remember you by."

Father Morton then said "Pray, my son. Consider where you will spend eternity."

Barnes laughed, and was then executed, but did not stay dead.

In 1992, the prison graveyard was excavated during the construction for a new prison chapel and Barnes escaped his grave. Father Morton was one of those involved in his execution, and Barnes was bent on killing all those who witnessed his execution. 

Barnes went to the priest's office and returned his crucifix. The priest recognized it and the man, protesting the impossibility of his appearance. Barnes forced him into a corner and strangled him as he prayed.
