A corrections officer at Mule Creek State Prison near Sacramento was performing a headcount around 12:40 a.m. when he found the elderly killer “unresponsive on the floor.”

“The officer observed inmate Jason Budrow standing in his cell with Kibbe,” the California Department of Corrections said, adding that the two men were cellmates. Kibbe was taken to the prison hospital, where officials said: “life-saving measures were unsuccessful.”

He was pronounced dead an hour later.

Kibbe was a married furniture maker whose brother was a police detective. He was 81 years old at the time of death.

Kibbe was serving multiple life sentences without the possibility of parole for raping and killing at least seven women and girls over the span of 30 years. Kibbe was initially convicted in 1991 and sentenced to life in prison for strangling to death 17-year-old Darcie Frackenpoh.

The runaway from Seattle was killed after she disappeared from a West Sacramento street frequented by prostitutes, and her naked body was found in the mountains south of Lake Tahoe in 1987. DNA evidence from six other murders, in which the victims were throttled, linked Kibbe to the crimes that were committed between 1977 and 1987.

In 2008, he pleaded guilty to murder counts with special enhancements of rape and kidnapping stemming from the killings of Lou Ellen Burleigh, Lora Heedrick, Barbara Ann Scott, Stephanie Brown, Charmaine Sabrah and Katherine Kelly Quinones.

Roger Kibbe Victims

Burleigh, 21, had left her Walnut Creek home in 1977 for a job interview but never returned. She was kidnapped to Lake Berryessa, tied up, raped and murdered. Her skeletal remains were recovered in a creekbed in 2011, some 34 years after her death.

Brown, 19, of Sacramento, was sexually assaulted, strangled, and her body dumped in a ditch. A crumpled map was found near her car parked along I-5.

Sabrah, 26, a mother of three from Sacramento, disappeared after her car broke down along I-5 and she drove off with a strange man who offered to help. Her strangled body was found three months later.

Heedrick, 21, of Modesto, was last seen getting into a car. Her body was found along I-5 five months later.

Scott, 29, was kidnapped in Pittsburg. Her body was dumped at Lone Tree Gold Course in Contra Costa County, reported CBS San Francisco.

Prosecutors said in 2009 that Kibbe, who was an avid skydiver, used parachute cords to restrain his victims. He cut the women’s clothing into irregular shapes with scissors that belonged to his mother, and kept the pieces of fabric, as well as locks of his victims’ hair, as souvenirs, reported The Mercury News.
