Death row kidney? Desperate Oregon man says no

NEWBERG, Ore. — A man who’s been standing along the state highway through his town with a sign pleading for a kidney donor says he’s not so desperate he’d accept an organ from a man on Oregon’s death row for killing his wife and three children.
KGW-TV reported that Kevin Gray of Newberg was diagnosed with kidney failure in May. Lately, he’s been beside Highway 99 West with a sign reading: “Living Kidney Donor Needed. Please help.”
From death row, Christian Longo saw a report this week about Gray and offered a kidney.
On Friday, Gray said he’s not grateful and “Longo deserves no publicity from this.”
Longo was convicted in 2003 of killing his family members on the Oregon coast.
