Edrite "Manson" Isar was one of three men to be attacked in prison

There are new details to report in the December 2017 murder in the prison.  Just days ahead of trial, court filings reveal motive, timing, and even how the evidence was destroyed.

For hours leading up to his death at the Hagatna lockup, DOC detainee Edrite "Manson" Isar endured multiple beatings before he was reportedly raped. But, it appears he may not have been the only target. Court filings this week reveal Isar was just one of three men to be attacked.

Though KUAM won't be revealing the others' identities, all three detainees were in jail charged with Criminal Sexual Conduct - what one witness says was frowned upon at DOC. This same witness told police, "The beat down for the three was sent by someone at the 'Big House' in Mangilao, referring to the main DOC facility in Mangilao."

But that's not all.

Supplemental police reports identify a gang known as the "Ring Reps." These men told others to remain on their best behavior so they could get their Christmas drop - that's when detainees are given holiday gifts from loved ones. That day was December 28th.

The following day, Isar was found dead in his jail cell.

Though the scene was cleaned when authorities arrived, earlier court filings revealed Isar had urinated and defecated on himself. His cellmates reportedly changed his clothes and didn't tell corrections officers in fear they'd be targeted next. So, where did this evidence go?

Another witness told police "No one would check the washer and dryer on the federal side..."

These police reports were attached to defense's motion for clarification relative to viewing the crime scene. On Tuesday, defendants and their attorneys were able to view the holding cells at the Judiciary of Guam. This is where the beatings reportedly started.

According to an interview with cooperating witness, Jaxdino Kose, "there was a blind spot where the marshals cannot see." Kose also told police he was the lookout when the beatings occurred at the Hagatna lockup. Though he was arrested in this case, Kose was not charged.

On Friday, parties are anticipated to view the Hagatna lockup scene.

Set to face a jury in this case are Marvin Rechim, Isler Miller, Benster Benjamin, A-Last Simiron, Jeremiah Isezaki, Vimson Menisio, and Andrew Rios Jr.
