A state corrections spokeswoman says John Esposito was found
unresponsive in his cell at Sing Sing on Wednesday.
She says the death
was under investigation but didn’t appear to be suspicious.
He was serving a 15-to-life term for kidnapping Katie Beers and hiding her for 17 days under his Bay Shore, N.Y. home in 1992.
Linda Foglia says a corrections officer observed Esposito “not breathing” around 3:30 p.m. at the Ossining, N.Y., facility.
He had appeared before the parole board earlier in the day.
Beers said in a statement to CBS-TV she’s happy Esposito will “never have the opportunity to hurt anyone ever again.”
