Ricardo Medina Jr., the actor best known for his role as the Red Ranger on “Power Rangers Wild Force” in the early 2000s, allegedly murdered his roommate in Los Angeles on Sunday.
No, not the original Red Ranger from the 1990s – Austin St. John still appears to greet fans at Power Morphicon. Medina played the Red Ranger Cole Evans from in 2002 in the short-lived series, which lasted less than a year in the FOX Kids programming block.
Medina, who also appeared in Power Rangers spinoff projects like “Power Rangers Samurai,” was reported as being in a heated argument with his roommate on Sunday, according to an LAPD report and went into his room with his girlfriend. The roommate, Joshua Sutter, then “followed them and forced the door open.”
Upon entering the room, Medina is said to have fatally stabbed Sutter “with a sword kept next to the bedroom door,” at which time he called 911 himself to report the crime. His bail is being held at $1 million and has not been posted.
