More on the Sacramento Nation of Islam Killers
(The reader who researched and provided background on the story about the murders and attempted murders committed by the NOI in Sacramento, just wrote with more information about two of the killers.)
Hi, I just was reading and re-reading your blogs, and on the middle newspaper article for some reason you have this:
"His three co-defendants, Larry Pratt, 26, and Emery Hanson and Russell Lang, both 19,"
well Larry was 19, and the other articles above and below it say he was 19, so I know it's just a typo. [NS: The typo or mistake was from the newspaper article itself, so I left it in.]
Larry Roshea Pratt, muslim name is Kaka Kupendo, California Department of Corrections inmate #B60961, entered into prison for life on November 27, 1974. Crime location was Sacramento, CA, court case #44686. Currently housed at the California Medical Facility, 1600 California Dr., Vacaville, CA 95696. Last parole hearing was January 7th, 2009. He was not paroled. Larry was born in Grimes County, Texas on 8/12/1954. His mother was Rosa Lee Hall and his father was Reedy Pratt, Jr.
His co-defendant was Russel Lang, CDC #B60960, entered into prison 11/27/1974 and was last housed at Avenal State Prison in Avenal, CA. Court case number is the same, #44686. His last parole hearing was 12/5/2008 and he was not paroled.
Here in 2007 it looks like he was upset they'd denied his parole: http://www.docstoc.com/docs/500046/%28HC%29-Lang-v-Mendoza-Powers-et-al---5
