Inmate murder under investigation

Friday, July 18, 2014 — The Investigative Services Unit at High Desert State Prison is investigating the homicide of an inmate.

Just before 10:15 a.m. Thursday, July 17, 2014, three inmates with inmate-manufactured stabbing weapons attacked a 28-year-old inmate. Prison staff performed lifesaving procedures on the inmate who had been attacked and transported him to the Correctional Treatment Center, where he was pronounced dead at 10:52 a.m.

The deceased inmate was received from Los Angeles County on Oct. 12, 2005, and was serving a life sentence for second-degree robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and attempted second-degree murder. The inmate’s name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

There are three suspects in the case. The first suspect is a 23-year-old inmate who was received from Los Angeles County on Aug. 19, 2011, and is serving a life sentence for carjacking with the use of a firearm. The second suspect is a 30-year-old inmate who was received from Los Angeles County on Oct. 28, 2004, and is serving a life sentence for murder. The third suspect is a 24-year-old inmate who was received from Los Angeles County on April 27, 2009, and is serving a life sentence for murder.

Staff recovered two inmate-manufactured stabbing weapons at the scene. No staff members were injured in the incident.

Prison administrators have limited inmate movements on the facility where the incident occurred to facilitate the investigation. The Office of the Inspector General was notified.

One down, another to take his place, and still more on the street than is safe for the law-abiding citizen.

Two murders and a carjacker with weapons yeah upstanding citizens we should be concerned with o_0 Don't want to get attacked in prison don't get yourself locked up. Considering they have more resources available to them than our children and Vets I don't feel sorry for them one bit! Save us some tax money and let them all fight it out!

Correctional Officers can only do so much when it comes to these events as they can not get to every situation. Unfortunately these crimes still happen, even inside a prison. But yet they are still blamed for this? I have read so many crimes in Susanville over the past couple years that as a community you should take a stand on this and make a difference instead of commenting the lack of work ethic and pointing blame on the Officers for a prison issue. Be a real community and make a difference. It's obvious that the youth are not the only ones lacking activities to do there as grown adults have nothing better to do than point blame and ridicule. This use to be such a lovely town!

Thanks Leilani Rose! I took my meds this morning and no Prozac is not one that the doctor ordered. I just took a breath of fresh air and realized that we must continue to be strong and live our lives normally .

Having worked at a state prison-this is no shocker -criminals are there for a reason -the criminal behavior is still inside them, it has nothing to do w/ the CO's Miguel-they put there life's on the line every day- if you think you can do a better job-go to the Academy-go to Pelican Bay-true-everyd ay stuff there-

This is why we have a prison in Susanville. We have criminals from throughout the state and they are dangerous. To be a criminal within the walls of the prison and you mess up. There is a price to pay. This inmate paid a price and it proved to be his life. We as citizens of Lassen County have got to realize that when these types of crime happen, We must continue to be strong and live our lives normally.
