David Oseas Ramirez, 56, who had been serving a life sentence for molesting an 11-year-old girl in 2013, was found dead in his prison cell at Duval County Jail in Jacksonville, Florida, on Tuesday morning.  

Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office announced in a statement on social media that a fight broke out between Ramirez and convicted murderer Paul Dixon, 43, who was later arrested over the incident.

Outlining the events,  the statement said: ‘On July 30, 2019, around 11 am, detectives were notified of a death that took place on the fifth floor of the Pre-Trial Detention Facility located at 500E Adams Street.

‘The fifth floor is divided into two sides, east, and west. This incident took place on Five East. The inmates that are housed on Five East are all sentenced and awaiting transfers to state prison or have returned for court proceedings.

‘Homicide detectives are investigating a death in one of these cells. Foul play is suspected in reference to this death.

‘An altercation took place between the victim and his cellmate.

‘Once correctional officers were made aware of the victim’s injury, a medical team was contacted and responded within two minutes.’

The statement adds that the victim was subsequently pronounced dead and that police are now reviewing prison surveillance cameras.

Dixon, who was convicted of murder when he was 17, allegedly pushed Ramirez’s head into the toilet water until he died, added USA Today. 

A third prisoner who witnessed the incident is refusing to co-operate with the authorities, local media reports.

Crime expert Ken Jefferson told Newsweek that convicted child abusers like Ramirez find ‘no peace in jail’.

He said: ‘When men go to jail accused, convicted of hurting a child, there is no peace in jail.

‘They have to constantly watch over their back.

‘They have to hope they can befriend someone to look out for them. To protect them.’
