Ramon Escobar, now 52 years old, was sentenced to life in prison without parole last year. Despite his notorious reputation as a serial killer, his ability to cause chaos and destruction was thought to have been significantly reduced. However, recent news reports suggest that this may not be entirely true. It appears that even while behind bars, Escobar could violently attack another inmate at the Delano prison. This incident is a reminder that even the most dangerous criminals can still pose a threat, even when they are supposed to be locked up for life.
Escobar’s death count reportedly increased by one in just nine months when he allegedly strangled his cellmate in February at North Kern State Prison in Delano. Prosecutors have made this claim, and the incident has added to the grim reputation that Escobar has earned for himself. The details of the case are shocking, and the incident has once again brought the issue of safety in prisons to the forefront. According to reports, the victim’s cause of death has been confirmed as strangulation, and investigations are ongoing into the matter.
During a recent hearing in Kern County, the accused killer, believed to have committed eight murders, made his first appearance in court. Despite his not-guilty pleas, bail was denied for the suspect. Clad in standard prison attire, the defendant briefly spoke with Deputy Public Defender Jano Mattaeo during the proceedings.
Next month marks the date of his next court appearance.
The reasons behind why Escobar was assigned a cellmate remain unclear. However, the recent death of his alleged victim, Juan Villanueva, raises concerns about the safety of inmates in the custody of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. The victim, a convicted sex offender from Los Angeles County, was found dead just three weeks after being placed in the same cell as Escobar.
