The rapist/murderer of 12 year old Polly Klaas was found unconscious in his cell --the result of an opium overdose...
Polly Klaas' murder was instrumental in instituting the "three strikes" law in California. Her murderer, Richard Allen Davis, was a repeat offender. Her father is now a very vocal child/victim's advocate and is the founder of Klaas Kids.
Fortunately or unfortunately they were able to revive the bastard, but here's the thing that got me...
"...Davis was returned to his cell hours after the incident and was "doing fine" Monday, Crittendon said.
It was not clear whether the overdose was accidental or a suicide attempt, and officials had not determined where Davis got the drugs, though they suspected a visitor or another inmate smuggled them into the prison.
Davis was already a repeat offender when he broke into the Petaluma girl's home in 1993 and kidnapped, molested and killed her...." (source)
