EL DORADO (KSNT) – A man convicted of murdering three people at two Kansas Jewish community sites has died Tuesday in a Kansas prison, according to the Kansas Department of Corrections.
Frazier Glenn Cross Jr., also known as Frazier Glenn Miller, died at the El Dorado Correctional Facility on May 3 after five years in prison, according to KDOC. He was serving time for a 2014 deadly shooting targeting Jewish people after being convicted of capital murder, attempted murder, assault, and firearms convictions.
Cross was an avowed anti-Semite and was most recently asking the Kansas Supreme Court to overturn his death sentence. He had been imprisoned since November 2015.
KDOC said its initial assessment indicated Cross died of natural causes, but it is waiting for an autopsy to confirm the cause of death. When an inmate dies in custody, KDOC and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation investigate the death as standard procedure.
William Lewis Corporon, 69, and his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, were killed in the parking lot of the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park. Cross also gunned down 53-year-old Terri LaMano at the nearby Village Shalom retirement home.
Cross said in his trial that he shot the victims because he wanted to kill Jews. His victims were all Christian.
