Floyd L. McKinney was executed at the Nevada State Prison on November 27, 1943 for the crime of murder.

McKinney was a native of Gateway, Oregon and was 34 at the time of his death.

McKinney was convicted of killing 2nd Lt. Raymond Fisher on April 24, 1943. Fisher and his wife were traveling from Camp Gowen in Boise, Idaho to March Field in Riverside, California.

Mrs. Fisher was also killed, but McKinney was only charged with killing Lt. Fisher.

According to his trial McKinney met the Fisher's in Ely and convinced them to take another route than the one that they intended to take to California.

McKinney killed them and dumped their bodies outside Sand Springs in Churchill County in north central Nevada.

McKinney then went on to Reno, and sold the Fisher car to a used-car dealership. No motive to the killing was ever established.
