Aaron Joseph Purmort's obituary was published in the "Star Tribune" on Sunday. It has since gone viral after he stated he died from a radioactive spider bite that led to years of crime-fighting and a long battle with a criminal named Cancer. Purmort went on to recognize his family, including his first wife, pop star Gwen Stefani.

Last week, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals voted 5-to-4 to deny a final state appeal in the case. It remains before the federal courts, after the U-S Supreme Court ruled in 2004 that Panetti was not examined adequately to determine if he was suitable for execution due to mental illnesses first diagnosed in the mid-1970's.
