Killer Michael Keith Moon Released

 

 

 

Michael Keith Moon, “is a cold calculated killer,” says  Det. Chuck Gaynor.

Moon, 63, has been released from Donovan Prison and has been living in a half way house in downtown San Diego, reports CBS 8 News.

“It is appropriate for the public to be aware of the fact there are people like Michael Moon out there, and these people pose a risk to society,” said Gaylor.

Moon was raised in San Diego and his story is far from being an upstanding citizen.  He was convicted of killing Rhonda Salazar in Reno in 1978.  He plead guilty and was sentenced to life in prison with parole and was released in 1990.  
Moon barely managed to stay out of trouble for a year, before he attacked an elderly man in Woodstock, Illinois in 1991.  Moon probably would have killed him, if a passing citizen had not stopped him.  Moon was charged with attempted murder and was released in 2000.  Moon’s parole was revoked and was sent back to prison until 2005.

In 2007, Moon was arrested for the the 1977 murder of Liborio Lindin, a migrant worker who he beat to death in a garage at a home under construction on Falconer Drive in Escondido. 

Lindin’s murder case remained unsolved for 30 years until Gaylor, who was hired as a reserve officer in 2007 to be part of a cold-case homicide team reopened the case, which tied Moon to Lindin’s murder, reports the San Diego Union Tribune

One partial bloody fingerprint processed by the Dept. of Justice came back as a match to Moon, according to the North County Times.  The team began their long tedious investigation by gathering information and interviewing people that should have brought justice to Lindin’s family with the arrest and conviction of Moon, but it seems to fall short.  

You would think that after the latest conviction that Moon would never be allowed out of prison, but instead he was sentenced to 8 years and after serving four, he was let out of jail again.  It is hard to understand why, after killing two people, and according to Gaylor, probably more that he got away with, that Moon is allowed any freedom at all.  

Even more sobering is that the justice system valued Rhonda Salazar’s life so little that Moon only served 12 years for her murder, but it is even more upsetting that Liborio Lindin’s life was only valued a little over four.

Unbelievable.

There is another article about this insanity here.

There is a video report here but it comes with this:

WARNING: Some of the video and photos in this video report may be extremely disturbing.

Well, maybe after he kills his next victim the state will keep him locked up.
