Condemned Inmate Mario Lewis Gray Dies


SAN QUENTIN – Condemned inmate Mario Lewis Gray, 55, who was on California’s death row from Los Angeles County, was found unresponsive in his cell on Saturday morning at San Quentin State Prison.  Subsequently, he was pronounced dead at the prison on May 4, 2013, at 6:59 a.m.  The cause of death is unknown pending the results of an autopsy.  Gray was single-celled.

Gray was sentenced to death on March 14, 1990, by a Los Angeles County jury for the April 24, 1987, burglary, rape, and murder of 87 year old Ruby Reed. Gray had been on death row since March 21, 1990.

Since 1978 when California reinstated capital punishment, 59 condemned inmates have died from natural causes, 22 have committed suicide, 13 have been executed in California, one was executed in Missouri; and six have died from other causes. One is currently pending autopsy results. There are currently 735 offenders on California’s death row.

Someone fix this lame ass system already! This guys should be executed daily. Maybe given 1 appeal , but after that lights out! Stop paying for the condemned to appeal over and over. If the sentence was death then give them death.

The lib-tards are idiots.
