Inmate Who Killed Cellmate "Was Hearing Voices"

 

Jose Guadalupe Barrera-Rodrigu, a convicted double murderer at the Sacramento Main jail awaiting sentencing, has been rebooked after allegedly killing his cellmate, Demario Lavell Patterson. Both were being held in the protective custody unit.

According to Deputy DA Noah Phillips, Barrera-Rodrigu "was seen by the psych unit at the Main Jail and he had a complaint of auditory hallucinations. He said he was hearing voices ... telling him to hurt people and to kill himself."

When informed of Barrera-Rodrigu's psychiatric status, Patterson's mother cried "Oh my God. Why did they let Demario be in the same cell as him? Why?"

Officials have called the killing "just an unfortunate incident."

The sheer terror for both of these men must have been horrific.

  I don't get it.  
 
You read these articles that speak of the subject "hearing voices" as if its something unusual. Why not speculate on the subjects mental status(schizophrenia?)? It can't be any less accurate than whether he/she was actually hearing voices or not and it is more scientific.
