Man convicted of killing 8-year-old girl is strangled to death in prison Anthony Palma

Hazen, who said she is not celebrating Palma's death, said she had tried to reach out to the convicted killer to get him to reveal the location of her daughter's remains or confess any other possible crimes, but any information he had has now died with him.

Anthony Palma, 59, was beaten and strangled to death inside his cell at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary in McAlester. He was found unresponsive during a routine security check, could not be revived and was pronounced dead.

He was reportedly killed by his cellmate, 38-year-old Raymond Pillado, who is now serving three life sentences for murder.

In 2017, Palma was found guilty of the abduction, sexual assault, and murder of eight-year-old Kirsten Hatfield in 1997.

According to the Associated Press, a report released by the Oklahoma medical Examiner has ruled that 59-year-old Anthony Palma died from "ligature strangulation and blunt force trauma to the head" on January 11 in his cell at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary in McAlester.

Kirsten Hatfield's body was never located (The Charley Project). When they removed the blanket, they noticed 'blood all over the floor and inmate Palma appeared to not be breathing'.

Both Pillado and Palma were serving life sentences.

His sample matched the DNA on the underwear and the window sill, the chief said.

Palma's death was reported last month but the cause was unclear at first.

"Our hopes are, with any case like this, the suspect who's convicted ... in this case, it was Anthony Palma ... that hopefully, he would have some inkling of a conscience, maybe intervention by a higher power, maybe God, and come out and tell us exactly what he did with her".

Department of Corrections officials believed Palma was ultimately killed by his cellmate due to the nature of his crime. The girl's body has never been found.

'Those who are serving time for victimizing children, they are definitely more vulnerable, ' said DOC spokesman Matt Elliot.

Kirsten's mother, Shabnon Hazen, doesn't plan to "give up hope" just yet.

'I'm not going to...

Police told KFOR that they were planning to interview Palma later this year in hopes of finding the girl's body.
