Patrick Lane Moody (July 4, 1966 – March 17, 2006) was a convicted killer, put to death by lethal injection in Raleigh's Central Prison.

On September 16, 1994, Moody, who was of marginal intelligence, shot and killed his girlfriend's husband. Moody's girlfriend, Wanda Robbins, of Davidson County, North Carolina, convinced him to shoot and kill her husband, Donnie Robbins, who had a $5000 life insurance policy.[1]

Many requests for clemency were made, on the grounds of both his marginal intelligence and allegations that the drugs used in North Carolina's lethal injection mixture could cause "unconstitutional pain and suffering". All requests were denied by North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley.
