Three Santa Clara County Sheriff's correctional deputies have been arrested on suspicion of murder, conspiracy and assault following the death of an inmate last week.
The deputies were identified by the Sheriff's Office as: Jereh Lubrin, Matthew Farris and Rafael Rodriguez.
At a news conference Thursday, Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith said, “The disappointment and disgust that I feel cannot be overstated. Because our investigation has concluded that three correctional deputies…are the reason for this brutal murder of Michael Tyree.”
Sheriff Smith said she has invited the FBI to help investigate Tyree’s death. The sheriff wouldn’t comment on whether the deputies were properly trained or if anyone else might have been involved.
