The ‘Power Ranger’ Murderer
Child actor Skylar Deleon is currently sitting in jail for the murder of Tom and Jackie Hawks of Prescott, Arizona. Deleon, who had a minor role on the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers series in the ’90s, killed the couple in an attempt to steal their boat in 2004. Deleon answered an ad about the boat and went for a test ride with the couple out to sea. While on the boat, Deleon and an accomplice beat Tom and forced him to sign the Bill of Sale before attaching the couple to an anchor and throwing them in the water. Their bodies were never found.
Deleon says he did it to get enough money to leave his wife and have sex-reassignment surgery.
