Quadruple US killer Kevin Dahlgren found dead in Czech prison cell

US citizen Kevin Dahlgren, convicted of four murders in the Czech Republic, committed suicide in a Czech prison on Thursday night, the CTK news agency reported citing three reliable sources.

Dahlgren was given a life sentence in May 2013 for killing four members of the family he was living with in the country’s second city, Brno.

The 25-year-old was currently serving his sentence in the Valdice top security prison. His lawyers had requested he serve his sentence outside prison but under surveillance at the end of last year.
