Pris­oner kills cell­mate, then mu­ti­lates his body

The Palm Beach Post - - OBITUARIES -

An in­mate at a prison stran­gled his cell­mate, gouged the body’s eyes and then strung the dead in­mate’s ear around his neck, ac­cord­ing to a news re­port.

The Mi­ami Her­ald re­ported that Larry Mark was killed early Thurs­day at Columbia Cor­rec­tional In­sti­tu­tion, just hours be­fore an un­re­lated gang fight erupted in an­other build­ing at the prison.

Corrections of­fi­cials say the prison houses some of the most vi­o­lent in­mates in the state. A De­part­ment of Corrections spokesman says Mark had been serv­ing a life sen­tence for a 1981 mur­der. Nei­ther the corrections agency nor the Florida De­part­ment of Law En­force­ment pro­vided the name of the at­tacker.
