Scott Dozier, 48, appears to have committed suicide in his death-row cell in Ely State Prison in Nevada (pictured). He had been convicted of the murder of Jeremiah Miller in 2002, and also of Jasen Green, whose remains were found in an Arizona desert in 2001.
The mystery is that he had been placed on suicide watch in isolation, after he said he wanted to die, after his execuion by lethal injection had been twice postponed.
He expressed his death wish last year: “Life in prison isn’t a life. This isn’t living, man….If people say they’re going to kill me, get to it.”
He got his wish – but how?
