Serial Killer Andrew Urdiales Found Dead in San Quentin Cell


Serial Killer Andrew Urdiales was found dead in his San Quentin State Prison cell today, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation stated in a news release Monday. Andrew Urdiales was found unresponsive in his cell during a security check on Friday night, and was pronounced dead just after midnight Saturday morning. CDCR says the death may be a possible suicide. 

Urdiales was on death row for killing 5 women in SoCal. He is also convicted of killing 3 other women in Illinois. 

Corrections officials also say that another inmate, who'd been on death row since 2005 for the strangulation-arson murders of four people in a Hollywood Hills home over a business dispute, was found dead in his cell at San Quentin on Sunday night. Victor Govin's death is also being investigated as a suicide, and there's no indication that his and Urdiales' deaths are related.
