Inmate Paul Duran Murdered In Cell With Killer He Testified Against

by | 15th, March 2009

PAUL Duran was 23. Pual Duran was found dead after just 15 minutes in a cell at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary with a man he testified against, one Jessie James Dalton.

Dalton was serving a life sentence for the March 2002 shooting death of Billy Ray Wayne, 19. Dalton, then 25, Duran and Warren Alan Plank, 16, carried guns as they broke into Wayne’s Oklahoma City home and demanded money from the family.

Duran testified against Dalton in exchange for a lesser charge and a 28-year prison term, Smith said.

And was thus barred from having to share a cell with him.

“He was a scared 16-year-old kid who was hanging out with the wrong guy,” Smith said.

Smith said Duran was extremely remorseful over Wayne’s death.

“I remember he apologized to the young man’s family,” Smith said. “If he could have changed what happened that night, he would have.”

And then the authorities put him in a locked room with the man he grassed on. And 15 miunutes later, he was dead…

What is the purpose of jail?
