Two inmates suspected of murder

Two suspects have been identified and removed from the general population at Folsom State Prison following a homicide that occurred Feb. 25 in a medium-security unit.

Inmate Richard Allen Leonard died after being assaulted with a slashing-type weapon. Responding staff began life-saving procedures before he was pronounced dead at 8:01 a.m. Saturday in Folsom State Prison.

Leonard, 44, was received from Orange County on September, 2, 1998, and was serving a 25-years-to-life term for aggravated sexual assault on a child.

His death is being investigated as a homicide by the Folsom State Prison Investigative Services Unit and Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office investigators. The names of the suspects are being withheld pending investigation.

The majority of Folsom State Prison population is back to a normal program. One segment of the population remains on a modified program pending further investigation.
