Louisiana Serial Killer Derrick Todd Lee Gets Medical Treatment Outside Of Angola
Convicted Louisiana serial killer and death row inmate Derrick Todd Lee was moved to a medical facility outside of Angola.
Corrections Department spokeswoman Pam Laborde confirmed that Lee, 47, was receiving medical treatment outside of the fences of Angola. She couldn't confirm where he was taken, or for what ailment he was being treated due to state and federal privacy laws.
Lee was sentenced to death for murdering 22-year-old Charlotte Murray Pace, an LSU graduate student, in her home.
He was also convicted of 2nd degree murder in the 2002 killing of 21-year-old Geralyn Barr DeSoto, in which he received life in prison.
Lee was suspected of killing five other women in the South Louisiana area between 1998 and 2003. Those he is suspected of killing are Gina Wilson Green and Carrie Lynn Yoder, of Baton Rouge; Trineisha Dene Colomb, of Lafayette; Randi Mebruer, of Zachary; and Pam Kinamore, of Briarwood.
He was not tried in those cases, however, DNA evidence linked Lee to the five killings.
Evidence from those cases were introduced in the penalty phase of Lee's 2004 trial for Pace's murder.
