Prison guards ‘didn’t notice’ that Satanist tortured, beheaded cellmate

California prison guards “didn’t notice” that a self-described Satanist decapitated and dissected the body of his cellmate, a state investigation found.

Why the officers at Corcoran State Prison didn’t discover the grisly scene until the following morning is not detailed in the reports, the Los Angeles Times reported. A lawsuit filed by the dead inmate’s family claims the cell bars were covered with a sheet and accuses the guards of not checking the cell.

The mutilated corpse of Luis Romero, 44, was discovered the morning of March 9, 2019, in the cell he shared with Jaime Osuna, 31.

Osuna was serving a life sentence for torturing and killing a woman at a motel in 2011 and had a history of attacking fellow inmates. He had never had a cellmate before.

He allegedly used a homemade knife to cut out one of Romero’s eyes, chop off a finger, remove part of his ribs and slice out part of a lung. He ultimately cut off his head. He also posed the body, slicing Romero’s face open on either side of his mouth to resemble an extended smile, according to an autopsy.

When the guards finally found the dreadful scene, Osuna was wearing a necklace made of Romero’s body parts.

A state investigation found that the guards reported both men alive the night before. The state probe doesn’t say why the cell was not checked at any point during the night. It said the two officers falsely reported seeing Romero alive and that two other offices did not report that their colleagues had failed to properly conduct inmate counts the night of the horrific scene.

The report also criticizes the prison department’s internal affairs investigation, noting that some officers lied and key witnesses were not interviewed. And the question of whether the two killers should have been put together was never probed.

Osuna has been transferred to Salinas Valley State Prison’s psychiatric inpatient program. He has been diagnosed with unspecified schizophrenia spectrum, antisocial personality disorder and borderline personality disorder, according to the newspaper.

Man Accidentally Released from Jail Goes Home to His Wife. She Immediately Drives Him Back!

James Rynerson didn’t so much escape from jail as walk out freely due to a mistake.

But his wife wouldn’t let him become a fugitive.

Mesa County Sheriff’s Office

As the Daily Sentinel reports, the 38-year-old from Mesa County, Colorado was in jail, awaiting trial on charges of trespass, disorderly conduct, and menacing. For a short time, Rynerson shared a cell with a man named Marvin March, who was due to be released on May 21.

March was moved out of their cell before his release date. However, the jail’s housing list wasn’t updated before the release date arrived. So when jailers arrived to tell March he was able to leave, the only person they found was Rynerson.

Rynerson didn’t correct the guards who assumed he must be March and gave him March’s clothing and debit card. Rynerson signed March’s name on the release forms, and no one at the jail thought to check Rynerson’s ID wristband against the name on the forms.

That’s how Rynerson found himself unexpectedly free on the evening of May 21. So he did what most men would do in his situation … he went home to see his wife.

Rynerson’s wife was surprised to discover the husband she thought was still in jail standing in the garage at her apartment complex. He explained that he had been accidentally released after being mistaken for someone else. But if he expected her to let him stay, he was in for a surprise.

Meanwhile, the staff at the Mesa County jail discovered the mistake when the real March asked a deputy when he was going to be released.

Rynerson’s wife told her husband that he had to go back. And she even drove him back to the jail herself. According to the Daily Signal, the subsequent court records stated:

[Rynerson’s wife] told Inmate Rynerson he needed to turn himself in after he informed her he had been released under another person’s name,. [She] convinced Inmate Rynerson to go back, and personally drove him back to the Mesa County Detention Facility.

Two hours after he walked out of jail, Rynerson was back. Rynerson’s wife later returned March’s jacket and debit card to Mesa County deputies, as her husband had left them at her house before returning to jail.

The Mesa County Sheriff’s office is investigating the series of mistakes that led to Rynerson’s release. They say that the failure to check Rynerson’s photo and wristband against March’s release papers was a violation of policy.

Sgt. Henry Stoffel praised Rynerson’s wife for persuading him to return to jail. He told the Daily Signal:

“We appreciate that she recognized his error and recommended that he turn himself in before it became something more significant.”

Rynerson’s two-hour jailbreak has resulted in a series of additional charges, including escape, criminal impersonation, forgery, and theft.

Bill Cosby is mentally preparing himself for prison!


His attorneys might still be squawking about innocence and appeals, but Bill Cosby is mentally preparing himself for prison.

“This is what they wanted,” the comedian once revered as “America’s Dad” told Page Six after a Pennsylvania jury found him guilty Thursday of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand.

When he arrived at his suburban Philadelphia home after court, he was greeted at the door by another “victim” — his wife and most loyal supporter, Camille. She gave him a hug and a kiss, said a source who was present.

Throughout the trial, the 80-year-old Cosby repeatedly talked to Page Six about “that place.” He meant a prison cell, which might become his home for the rest of his life beginning this summer, when a judge could sentence him to a maximum of 30 years.

“When they send me to that place, I want you to be there to tell my story because it seems no one is listening, no one wants the real story,” Cosby said.

During his first trial a year ago, he also spoke to Page Six, with the agreement that nothing could be shared publicly during the legal proceeding. But at the recently concluded retrial, his public demeanor turned bitter and coarse. He could be heard using hard language: “Damn you! F–k this! Bulls–t.”

He often ground his teeth, bit his lip and clenched his fist, as the parade of female accusers told their stories of being drugged and sexually assaulted.

After the verdict was read Thursday and Judge Steven O’Neill chastised District Attorney Kevin Steele for his continued objection to allowing Cosby to remain free on bail, Cosby erupted.

“He doesn’t have a plane, you a- -hole. I’m sick of this,” Cosby screamed at Steele.

The prosecutor had said Cosby had a private plane and could escape custody.

“When there was talk of a plea bargain, I said no,” Cosby told Page Six last year. “I just refused to plead guilty to something that just didn’t happen. It didn’t happen, and Andrea knows that, and I think [prosecutors] know that.”

The deal offered in 2017 would have required Cosby to serve under house arrest, register as a sex offender and be on probation for an undisclosed period.

“Why take a deal?” he said. “Not when they want me to say that I’m a sex offender. I didn’t do what they said I did.

“But, you know, I think back to the time when Camille and I went to visit Nelson Mandela in South Africa. He was a free man, but I remember when we met him at Robben Island where he had been in a prison for all of those years. I sat in that cell where he lived, and I saw how he lived . . . what he had to eat to live and what he went through.

“So, if they send me to that place, then that’s what they will do, and I will have to go there.”

Supreme Court Upholds Teenager’s 241-Year Prison Term!

_100554761_bobbycollage1The US Supreme Court has rejected the appeal of a man sentenced to 241 years in prison for a crime he committed when he was 16 years old.

Bobby Bostic committed several violent crimes in 1995, including armed robbery, but his lawyers argued his sentence was unconstitutional.

They cited the Eighth Amendment, which forbids “cruel and unusual punishments” and demanded a retrial, but in vain.

The justices did not give a reason for their decision.

The teenage Bostic had robbed people delivering Christmas presents at gunpoint, shot and injured a man, and stole a car.

Bostic’s lawyers wrote in their petition that the unfair sentencing meant Bostic, “who committed only nonhomicide offenses as a 16 year old, will never be fit to rejoin society, no matter how successfully he demonstrates maturity and reform as an adult”.

In 2010, the Supreme Court ruled that the Constitution “prohibits the imposition of a life without parole sentence on a juvenile offender who did not commit homicide.”

Bostic was sentenced in 1997, at the age of 18, and the judge who sentenced him has since said: “This is the only one where I regret the amount of time I gave.”

Evelyn Baker was a judge for 25 years, retiring 10 years ago. The Bostic sentence was the longest she ever gave.

“This is the only one where I regret the amount of time I gave,” she told the BBC earlier this year. “The amount of time is ridiculous.”

The Supreme Court’s rejection means Bostic will not be eligible for parole until he is 112.
