OKLAHOMA CITY -

Richard Glossip's attorneys admit they are feeling the pressure. With just nine days until his scheduled execution Glossip's attorneys are frantically working to save his life. 

“I don’t even want to think about this execution going through, I can’t,” Glossip’s attorney Don Knight said. 

Knight is one of three attorneys from across the country working pro bono to try and save Richard Glossip's life. 

Gov. Mary Fallin said the execution will go forward in nine days unless she is presented with new information in the case.  

Knight and defense investigators are currently in Oklahoma looking for that new evidence.

Knight is from Colorado and said he plans to be in Oklahoma up until the execution date interviewing witnesses connected 1997 murder of Barry Van Treese.

“What we have been finding in the course of our investigation is many key players have never been talked to by any defense lawyer at all or any defense investigator, which is stunning since there have been two trials in this case,” Knight said.

Glossip's attorneys are also looking for information from someone who did time with Justin Sneed. Sneed testified Glossip masterminded the murder.

“If they would come forward and say let me tell you about something Justin Sneed has said, something that I overheard or that he said to me or something a friend told me he said about this situation that doesn’t go along with this idea that Richard Glossip is guilty,” Knight said.

Knight said Glossip's legal team has not met yet with Fallin to discuss the case, but hope to before the execution.

“She seems to be a substantive person so I think we need to respect that and come to her when we are absolutely ready to give her the information that we think gives her the ammunition she needs to give us the 60 say stay," Knight said.

With the world now watching what happens in this case, it's up largely to Oklahomans to put pressure on the governor to issue the 60 day stay, Knight said.

“When the rest of the world is looking at a state that is about ready to kill an innocent man, it really should make all Oklahomans pause and say ‘Do we want that? Why are we doing this to ourselves?’ Only Oklahomans can stop this,” he said. 

Glossip's execution is scheduled for Sept. 16.
