Former Power Rangers Star Sentenced To Death

| Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersBusted!


Holy shiz!

A former Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers actor has been sentenced to death for the murder of Tom and Jackie Hawks of Prescott, Arizona.

In 2004, 29-year old Skylar Deleon went on a test cruise with the couple on their yacht under the pretense of looking to purchase it. He then overpowered the couple, tied them to the anchor, and threw them overboard. The bodies have never been found.

Then, Deleon and wife-at-the-time Jennifer Henderson scrubbed the boat clean with bleach in Newport Harbor.

The defense pleaded for a life sentence from the jury, playing the abused and neglected child card, but they weren't sold.

    Thats so crazy! He deserves his punishment!

  2. 2

    hes noooooot a power rangers star.
    he had an uncredited non speaking role in one epsiode. an extra.
    as if he did that to that poor couple though.. anyone who who kills deserve the same themself.

  3. 3

    Yeah, I live in AZ and I knew this story. It is sad that they will not consider just dropping his ass in the ocean until the sharks eat him. I would pay for a ticket to that

  4. 4

    why is his wife getting off with it…it doesnt say anything about what she got. there was a special on these nuts on dateline or primetime..one of those news shows…i watched it a couple weeks ago…if u want things moron u have to work for them, not pick off ppl for thier shit.

  5. 5

    Well, this might not be too nice, but which one was he??
    Like what color.
    I will be upset if it is the red one.
    That was my fav..

  6. 6

    uh, he was on that show like twice. but what an awful thing. :(

  7. 7

    so he wasnt an actual power ranger? what a douche

  8. 8

    I heard he laughed when he was sentenced. If that isn't psycho what is?

  9. 9

    His victims were put through pure hell. They died horrible deaths. He deserves to die ASAP!
    He wasn't really a child actor. Just a bit player.
    He and his wife are both evil. I have no sympthy for them whatsoever!!!!!!!

    Can you imagine how horrifying it must have been to be tied -ALIVE- to an anchor & thrown overboard ? This animal deserves the death penalty.

  12. 12

    Re: Novel1
    I'll buy us both front row seats!!!!!

  13. 13

    Thats fucked up! He did what? Tied them to a ANCHOR and THREW THEM OVERBOARD! You need death!

  14. 14

    I think he was the red one…

  15. 15

    who was he on that show?

  16. 16

    That's sick

  17. 17

    Man Perez, I read this thinking it was an ACTUAL power ranger star that I used to watch, but this dude was just an extra on the show…and he didn't even have any lines!! Very misleading…But a very sad story to read nonetheless. I hope the couple may rest in peace :(

  18. 18

    yeah, what a fucked up way to die….he deserves to die as well.

  19. 19

    Re: caitwin

    He wasn't the red one!!!

    But this is fucked up though.

  20. 20

    Holy shit.

  21. 21

    Re: Jayme419

    So not funny.
    That was and is my FAV!!
    Don't believe you.

  22. 22


  23. 23

    but… he wasn't a power ranger
    he doesn't even have his own wiki!!! he's mentioned on the wikipedia page for the murder, and all they say is that he had a non-speaking part in an episode of power rangers.. ONE EPISODE, NOT SPEAKING!!!
    that doesn't make him a star.. that makes him an extra.
    gosh perez, you would think u'd be better at checking shit like that out.. tsk tsk

  24. 24

    He wasnt a star!! he was an extra!

  25. 25

    you got me all upset thinking it was like…the red or green ranger or something! It was an extra who had a non-speaking role in one episode in 1994!

  26. 26

    Fuck! Wasn't he the blue ranger?

  27. 27

    He deserves it…what ever happened to the wife? Was she tried in court at all? I hope so, I remember watching an episode of 20/20, and she was at the bank with him trying to cash a check he had the couple write out to them before he threw them over-board.

  28. 28

    OMG…that's terrible! Nope, he needs a very slow tortured death. No mercy! What happened to his wife? What did she get?

  29. 29 says – reply to this


    Re: UrMajestyMsG – his wife was convicted and so was a 3rd person. i think a 4th person was involved as well. this is just normal "reporting" for dickfuck….not giving the full story. and he wasn't one of the power rangers either.

  30. 30

    obvi he was the pink one. cmon guys, how could you not recognize him?

  31. 31

    is he the red one? wtf that is so messed up. i think this is a justfied punishment

  32. 32


  33. 33

    Oh my lord…or as Alpha 5 would say: Ayayayay….Lmao this sick.

  34. 34

    Re: Country_Girl – The wife got 2 back to back life sentences…a little too good for her if you ask me!

  35. 35

    I have no idea which power ranger this is and I watched the show

  36. 36

    fucking mario doesnt know a damn thing about reporting the story. This dude isnt even a damn ranger. just cuz he happened to be on the set that damn. Stupid

  37. 37


  38. 38

    omg was that tommy the green/white ranger?!?!?!?!!

  39. 39

    First off not a power ranger, 2nd wife got 2 consecutive life sentences, 3rd the best part of the story is the guy's crazy and tried to cut his dick off with a razor blade in jail before the sentence hearing but they found him in time to reatach so that now he can be put to death.

  40. 40

    Re: 29 – oh thanks…

  41. 41

    Re: katgirl476 – yeah he wanted to become a woman all his life or something…i seen this story on tv…i forgot all about that part tho….CRAZY BITCHES!!

  42. 42

    Why don't the Libs come out of the woodwork and defend this puke NOW. This is the person they compare to an unborn baby killed by abortion. They see no difference between the two.

  43. 43

    Re: magentapyramid – I'll bring the snacks and cocktails!

  44. 44

    the death penalty is too easy, this guy should have to rot in a prison cell for the rest of his life, completley cut off from all forms of human interaction. His feet and hands should be chained and he should be force fed through a tube going into his stomach. He should be left like that until he dies naturally!!! I think that is ten times more harsh than the death penalty.

  45. 45

    omfg thats unbelievable!! weird how someone can go from power ranger to murderer on death row..which color was he??

  46. 46

    Serves Him Right!!

  47. 47

    Snuggies- I agree!

  48. 48

    this psycho kinda resembles james franco. poor james!!

  49. 49

    Wow that is so crazy! I use to love the Power Rangers when I was little; who would have thought….

  50. 50

    They need to bring the death sentence to the UK. Far too many people are LITERALLY getting away with murder, doing it again..getting released..doing it again and so on..they get 6 years in prison if they're "good"

  51. 51

    Re: take me on the floor
    If you think that's easy, move to the UK. Death penalty doesn't exist over here.. people get away with everything. It's sickening…. They really need to bring it here ! or at least do experiments on them - alive - instead of animals!

  52. 52

    Re: SweetSunshine613 – He's a horrible person and he deserves whatever is coming to him, there is no question about that. But yeah, one episode….this is just another example of Perez completely distorting or completely manipulating the facts to create more appealing blogs. He does this shit all the time!

  53. 53

    he's an absolute psycho, as well as this he tried to cut off his dick with a razor blade when he was in jail… no joke.

  54. 54

    Re: allykisskiss
    The UK is the ideal model for the Left of this country. The UK is the "most civilized land in the world" according to them. I'm glad to hear from people like you all over the world. Maybe there's a chance things will go the right way. I believe the whole problem boils down to lack of reasoning and trusting emotion over logic.

  55. 55

    Re: mspierre

    Still at least He wasn't he red.

    And did anyone notice on the show that the yellow one was Asian.
    And the black one was African America.
    But kinda funny.
    It's a mix.

  56. 56

    Re: take me on the floor

    He will rot though.
    It takes FOREVER to die on death row.
    Take Tookie for example.
    How long did he wait around to die..like 5736732652376 years.

  57. GBean says – reply to this


    Ok, so what I don't get is this, why is he getting the death penalty, but Charles Manson didn't? Not that I believe in the Death Penalty at all! I think he should just be sentenced to Life in Prison without parole…

  58. 58

    holy shiz is right

  59. 59

    i still think he was the red one but everyone says he wasn't a star actually, mario tell us if he was an extra!

  60. 60

    Death is never the answer. Such a terrible story.

  61. 61

    Was he the little boy around 1:59 or was he one of the guys sitting at the table?

  62. 62

    fucking hell!! :/

  63. 63

    Whoa..thats my name..weird.

  64. 64

    Since were on the topic of death and Perez would rather post some more stuff on Lindsay Lohan than something bad that has happened today I will post it. If you havent heard today there was a school shooting in Dearborn, Michigan at Henry Ford Community College. A girl named Asia Mcgowen was murdered while practicing a scene in an empty room. She was only 20 years old. She was a very talanted acctress and dancer so please everyone pray for her family.

  65. 65

    that is so sick and sad.

    he has to face the consequences.
    You can buy the yacht but you can't buy people's lives.

  66. 66

    Who??…imdb.com said that he was in a single episode of Power Rangers…in his whole acting career!….if that's true, then why is he getting all this attention??

  67. 67

    He looks like James Franco.

  68. 68

    give me a break.
    he was in ONE episode.

  69. 69

    He was the green and then white power ranger!

    I'm glad he got the death sentence. There is absolutely no way the deaths were out of uncontrolled anger or an accident. To tie someone to an anchor and drown them is maniacal and disturbing. Hopefully, he has a reduced number of appeals.

  70. 70

    Re: SweetSunshine613 – Really? A uncredited non speaking role? Wanna Fuck?

  71. 71

    Re: take me on the floor – dude
    please, please do me this
    take a new pic with boxers
    my balls hurt seeing those red things

  72. 72

    Re: paulina=dan radcliffe fan #1

    Well, I really hope none of the real power rangers ever do something this gross.
    You gotta be twisted to do that to a human.

    And he was SO not the red one.
    We all figured this out.

  73. 73

    that's so sad, they should jus put him out his misery now, cuz he didnt give those people no time why should they let him live..and power ranger huh? i remember watchin them wit my lil brother, and uh its crazy cuz he took it too far…nobody deserved wha he did to that couple..they need to whoop his ass every day….and also do some more thangs ….tortore his ass! he deserves it..and his wife too..!

  74. 74

    whaaat?! thats crazy

  75. Eggs says – reply to this


    Perez, you're making it sound like he's a power ranger.

    Hell, he's even below you on the celeb. chain. He might as well be my fucking next door nieghbor. Get it right Ass Hole.

    P.S. Nice going with the diet.

  76. Eggs says – reply to this


    Imagine their terror being chained to an anchor and thrown overboard?????


  77. 77

    OK first of all, thanx a bunch for making me waste 10 minutes of my time looking for which ranger he was FYI, he was on like one episode, that is not a star!!! So I hope to save some people some time

  78. Eggs says – reply to this


    Re: kerkieberkie

    I think they should let him go. They were old anyway. And probably needed a bath.

  79. 79

    Re: kerkieberkie

    he's not the white power ranger…i know he sorta looks like him, i thought the same thing. but i did a quick background check to see who played tommy and its not him.

    hear that perez? a quick background check…took 2 minutes to find out he wasn't actually a power ranger. DO YOUR JOB.

  80. 80

    Somebody already mentioned that he wasn't a star of the show. It was part of his con, though, to explain to the slain couple why a 20-some year old nobody would be looking to buy a half-million dollar boat. They beleived him, and on the 'test drive', the killer brought along 3 friends. Then after the boat was under way, they pulled guns, forced the victims to sign over power of attorney (!), beat them up, then tied them to the anchor and pushed it overboard. From their own boat. By someone they trusted. I think the sentence is just right. Read the book!

  81. RubyM says – reply to this


    Ha. I didn't even know they had the death sentence anymore except in crazy countries like Iraq and that. Bring it on!

  82. 82

    Come on people dont believe everything Perez says…. HE WAS NOT A POWER RANGER!!!!!!!!!!! OK… HE- WAS - NOT!!!! For God sakes do a background check.. f*ck! just google the damn name and you'll find out!!! That douche was in the show like twice!!… HE WAS NOT A POWER RANGER!!

  83. 83

    that is just fucked up. He deserves the death penalty for doing something so… EVIL! tied to the anchor alive and then thrown overboard!? that's fucking nuts

  84. 84

    I'm just curious but I wonder how one man, without a crane or anything, could lift an anchor with two people tied to it and toss it over anything. I' bet the prosecution's case was interesting…

  85. 85

    he played "roger" on the show…in one episode…and he didn't speak. power ranger star, pft. (yeah, I looked him up on wiki..dork…ah well).

  86. 86

    So, its sick to be a murderer and kill, but its not sick for a society to agree on killing someone.

    way to go america

  87. 87

    Hey fuckface, he wasn't even a power ranger, he wasn't anyone worth mentioning on the show! Why is this even news worthy? This untalented MURDERER killed people for a frigging boat…do away with him already! He obviously has a thing for murdering people, so let him get a taste of how it feels to suffer. Good riddance!

  88. 88

    Re: PeanutBelle – Yeah, Tommy was the best! LOL.

  89. 89

    Re: cs1234 – Are you new here? Why would Mario actually look into a story??? He has his shitty friends write his posts, and when he actually writes one himself, he just copies and pastes. Why would he actually do what he gets paid for?? Noo, not Mario!

    Re: Punky B!


    Red = Favorite

  91. 91

    I looked him up on IMDb and the most he is recognized for is killing these two poor victims. He really deserves to be drowned himself, a slow awful painful death. Can you imagine what must have been going through the boat owners minds, as they were watching each other die? How awful. I wonder if he crazily did this as some sort of a publicity stunt because he wanted fame. I hope his asshole is torn to pieces in prison.

  92. 92

    Re: Alisa-Chan – If the boat had an open deck at the back, you dont have to lift the anchor, just push it off… And anchors come in all shapes and sizes, so regardless you could throw it over on your own..

  93. Eh? says – reply to this


    Pretty disturbing. Human beings are supposed to develop empathy or a conscience by around age seven. If it isn't taught, sociopaths happen. Murderous dudes often get caught torturing animals as kids, which is again a big warning sign of no conscience or empathy. Some can't be taught. Some hardened criminals brains look different in an M.R.I. from a non-criminal's brain.

  94. 94

    what he did was horrific, but i definitely dont think he should be sentenced to death.. i mean life prison but not death. i mean he obviously has some psychological problem..

  95. 95

    So Long! FUCKER!

  96. 96

    fucking epic

  97. 97

    I'm praying for the family of the victims.

  98. 98

    There is no death good enough, slow enough, agonizing enough for this piece of shit.

  99. 99

    Re: GBean

    Because Manson committed his crimes in California, and at the time, the death penalty was illegal in California. That's why Manson's doing life.

    This guy is in Arizona, where they are more conservative, and have the death penalty.

  100. 100

    he was a bit actor.
