SAN QUENTIN — A 49-year-old inmate convicted of torturing and burning his victim alive has died on California’s death row.
Prison officials say Spencer Brasure was found unresponsive alone in his San Quentin State Prison cell shortly after midnight Thursday.
Officials are awaiting an autopsy to determine the cause of death but say it doesn’t appear to be foul play.
Brasure was sentenced to death in 1998 for kidnapping and torturing 20-year-old Anthony Guest, then setting him on fire in 1996.
Guest once worked as a child actor.
