It feels every few months or so we get a weird and often controversial story with one of the actors from the Power Rangers franchise(s). The latest is a particularly gruesome story of Ricardo Medina Jr. murdering his roommate with a samurai sword.
Ricardo, who played Red Ranger on Power Rangers Wild force in 2002 and then Deker on Power Rangers Samurai and Power Rangers Super Samurai in 2011 and 2012 respectively, was arrested and is suspected of murdering his roommate Joshua Sutter in Palmdale, California.
Medina and Sutter were having an argument and during the fight, Sutter forcibly entered Medina’s room. The actor stabbed his roommate once in the abdomen with a samurai sword that he kept in his room.
It was the actor who called the police. Sutter was pronounced dead shortly after reaching the hospital. Medina is currently under arrest at the Palmdale Station Jail Facility.
