Inmate on Death Row suspected of taking lethal injection of heroin
A convicted murderer awaiting execution at San Quentin State Prison has died of an apparent heroin overdose -- making him California's first inmate to OD on Death Row.
"We found a syringe and heroin, so we suspect it was that," San Quentin spokesman Vernell Crittendon said after authorities searched Rodriguez's East Block cell.

1. Can't keep drugs out of our prisons
yet somehow expect to keep them out of the country?

Just goes to show...

2. How much would you like to bet the guards killed him?
Of course, since the guards have all the evidence and opportunity to dispose of the proof, they can probably get away with anything.

Did anyone read the list of prison deaths at the end of "Cry Freedom?"
