Who is Gary Black?

Before his conviction for the murder of Jason Johnson, Gary Black was a pimp who had had multiple troubles with the law.

In 1976 he was sentenced to 25 years in prison for assaulting a woman and nearly killing her.

After serving just 12 years of his sentence, Black was released and returned to his life as a pimp and prostitute.

Through his illegal activity as a brothel owner, he met his girlfriend Tammy Lawson.

On October 2, 1998, Black and Lawson met 28-year-old Jason Johnson while he and two friends were at a grocery store in their hometown of Joplin, Missouri.

While in the store, Lawson told Black that Johnson allegedly assaulted her while he was waiting in line.

After the alleged incident, Black followed Johnson until both vehicles stopped at a red light.

As they both stopped at the light, Black approached Johnson’s friend’s vehicle.

He brandished a knife and stabbed Johnson in the neck through the passenger window.

Three days later, Johnson succumbed to the stab wound and died.

On December 10, 1999, Black was convicted of first degree murder and on January 6, 2000 he was sentenced to death.

Black is serving his life sentence at Potosi Correctional Center in Mineral Point, Missouri.

Although he was originally sentenced to death, the state overturned his sentence in 2004.

In 2006 he underwent a second trial and received the exact finding that he was guilty of first degree murder and was sentenced to death.

In 2010, he accepted an Alford plea and avoided the death penalty, but still received life imprisonment without the chance of parole.

How can I watch Black’s I Am A Killer episode?

Black and investigators retell Johnson’s on-case murder in the true-crime docuseries I Am A Killer.

In season four episode five, he recalls the horrific incident and talks about his lack of remorse for what he did.

On December 21, 2022, the episode titled The Bogeyman became available on Netflix.

The Bogeyman is one of the six episodes of the fourth season of Netflix I Am A Killer.

During the show, Black reveals, “I was about to kill him the moment the truck stopped and I knew he couldn’t get away from me.

“In that moment I knew he was dead. And he died.

“I’m definitely a racist. I grew up in the Klan, I grew up around it.

“I’m sitting here costing the state of Missouri money, I’m doing it for me.”

The killer added: “I’m sitting right here costing the entire state of Missouri every penny I can get for the rest of my life.

“I don’t care. Even if you die, you will pay for me.”
