A Florida child sex abuse convict was drowned by another prisoner as an act of revenge.
According to the Daily Mail, David Oseas Ramirez,56, was serving a life sentence for sexually abusing an 11-year-old girl in 2013. He was found dead in his prison cell at the Duval County Jail last Tuesday. A statement by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office was released on their first official Facebook page stating that Ramirez was killed by Paul Dixon,43, during an argument.
‘On July 30, 2019, around 11am, detectives were notified of a death that took place on the fifth floor of the Pre-Trial Detention Facility located at 500E Adams Street.
The fifth floor is divided into two sides, east and west. This incident took place on Five East. The inmates that are housed on Five East are all sentenced and awaiting transfers to state prison or have returned for court proceedings.”
‘Homicide detectives are investigating a death in one of these cells. Foul play is suspected in reference to this death. An altercation took place between the victim and his cellmate.’
Dixon was serving a 25 year sentence for a murder he committed in 1993 when he was 17-year-old. Ramirez’s cause of death has yet to be determined by the medical examiner’s office.
