RIP Sausage King

Posted by on December 27 at 13:42 PM

Today at San Quentin, alleged “Sausage King” and convicted murderer Stuart Alexander dropped dead on death row.

As the AP reports, Mr. Alexander, owner of a San Leandro, CA meat factory, was sentenced to death after he murdered three meat inspectors, whose fatal shootings were handily caught on Alexander’s factory surveillance cameras.

And now, just as handily, Alexander has been felled by natural causes (investigators found no signs of foul play or suicide), saving the state many thousands of dollars and rescuing California from one more capital punishment-related stain on its soul.

I guess it's true, then. Meat kills.
