Why is there a REAL need to Report this in the News????? Nobody Cares!!! He should have expired a long time ago when he chose to commit his crime. Sorry to be hard, but, Its true!!! Society could care less about a "Death Row" inmate dying of "Natural Causes." I'm sure KRNV can do better than that!!
