CA- Mule Creek inmate's death under investigation

9-3-2009 California:

Officials are investigating the strangulation death of a 73-year-old inmate at Mule Creek State Prison in Ione.

David Noles was found dead at 4:05 p.m. Sunday in a cell he shared with another inmate. Noles was serving a 34-year sentence on a 1993 conviction from Sonoma County for rape with a foreign object and sexual battery.

As required by prison rules, Noles' cellmate was moved to a high security housing unit pending the death investigation. Prison officials and Amador County District Attorney's Office are investigating Noles' death. Officials did not immediately release the cellmate's name.

The death comes less than one month after another inmate at the prison, 62-year-old John Linley Frazier, apparently committed suicide by hanging himself. ..Source.. by The Record


CA- Officials say former chiropractor killed in prison

9-4-2009 California:

SACRAMENTO, Calif.—State prison officials say a former Sonoma County chiropractor serving time on a rape charge has been killed in prison.

Officials with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation say David Noles was found dead in his cell at Mule Creek State Prison Sunday.

An autopsy performed Wednesday by the Sacramento County Coroner's Office determined that the 73-year-old Noles had been strangled to death.

Noles was serving a 35-year sentence in the prison outside of Sacramento after being convicted in 1993 of rape and sexual battery.

When he was sentenced, a Sonoma County judge gave Noles the maximum sentence because he showed no remorse.

The 17-year-old female victim was both an employee and a patient of the former chiropractor. ..Source.. by
