A murderer who was executed in Florida Tuesday evening for the 1984 murder of a 26-year-old wildlife officer was buried in the Chesed Shel Emes cemetery in Liberty New York Wednesday night.

Martin Grossman, 45, was convicted of first-degree murder for killing Margaret Park when she found him with a stolen gun in a nature preserve. The funeral for Grossman was held in Monsey at the Niklesburg Bais Medrash.

Rabbi Isaac Lieder of Monsey organized the funeral and burial.

A number of people and organizations had rallied in support of Grossman. An archbishop had written to Florida Governor Charlie Christ, saying he had repented and was a “changed person.”

A number of Orthodox Jewish groups also asked the governor for clemency.
