CA- Child murderer commits suicide on death row

12-16-2008 California:

A condemned child sex murderer from San Bernardino County has killed himself on San Quentin's death row, authorities confirmed today.

Terrance Charles Page, 57, apparently hung himself. Officers discovered his body on Dec. 5.

Page had been convicted of the April 23, 1993, murder, sexual assault and kidnap of 6-year-old Tahisha Clay. Her beaten and suffocated body had been found in a mine pit outside Barstow, where both she and Page lived.

Another death row inmate, meanwhile, has died of natural causes. Isaac Gutierrez, 64, was a parolee who murdered Billy Faye Jones, a woman who had befriended him while he was in prison, and John Stopher, his ex-wife's boyfriend. Both murders took place on Oct. 31, 1986.

Gutierrez died in a hospital Dec. 7.

Sixteen inmates death row inmates have died of suicides and 42 from natural causes since California reinstated capital punishment in 1978. Thirteen have been executed, one was executed in Missouri and five died from what San Quentin authorities described as "other causes." ..Source.. by Andy Furillo:
