The infamous I-5 Strangler died at Mule Creek State Prison in California on February 28.

At 00:40, a MCSP correctional officer conducted a population count of the prison. He found inmate Jason Budrow, 40, standing in his cell with the Strangler, Roger Kibbe, unresponsive on the floor next to him. According to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, medical staff immediately responded to the incident but their life-saving measures were ineffective. Medical staff pronounced Kibbe dead at 1:23.

Kibbe, 81, was serving multiple life sentences without parole for seven murders between 1977 and 1987. A jury sentenced Kibbe to 25 years-to-life in 1991 after the murder of 17-year-old runaway Darcie Frackenpohl. Whilst in prison, DNA evidence connected Kibbe to six more killings within the time period.

The I-5 Strangler was infamous for cutting his victims’ clothing and hair with scissors, to take the items as trophies. Police later discovered that Kibbe frequently sky-dived and used such cords to strangle some of his victims.

At the time of publishing, California Police investigating Bibbe’s death rule it as a homicide. MCSP officials rehoused Budrow into a segregation unit while the investigation continues. There is no information concerning a weapon and the cause of Kibbe’s death has not been released to the public at this point.
