Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Serial killer Scott Erskine latest San Quentin death-row inmate to die from coronavirus complications”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

On Friday, California serial killer Scott Erskine, who among his many despicable acts was murdering two young boys in 1993, became the latest San Quentin State Prison fiend to apparently die from COVID-19 complications.

The 57-year-old convict was pronounced dead on Friday at a nonprison hospital, reported San Diego TV station KFMB.

On March 27, 1993, Erskine killed 13-year-old Charlie Keever and Jonathon Sellers, 9, who were riding their bikes that day.

DNA found on the victims was matched to Erskine, who had already been behind bars at San Quentin while serving a 70-year sentence for rape, penetration with a foreign object and oral copulation with force.

Erskine admitted to raping and murdering Renee Baker in Florida in 1989 but wasn’t formally charged in her death until more than a decade later when another DNA test for Baker matched a sample left behind by the killer, according to People Pill.
