Stow Beating Suspect Transferred To San Diego Prison, Takes Polygraph...


Giovanni Ramirez, the prime suspect in the beating of Giants fan Bryan Stow at Dodger Stadium opening day weekend, has been moved to the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego. Officials said the state Department of Corrections made the decision to have Ramirez serve his 10-month sentence for a parole violation there instead of in the Los Angeles area.

LA Police Chief Charlie Beck says that although he is confident that 31-year-old Ramirez is in fact responsible for the crime, authorities will exhaust all possible leads before moving forward- especially in looking for as many as two more suspects police feel are involved- another individual allegedly involved in the beating and a female who was reported as driving the getaway car.

"My comments today are in no way indicative of any changes in the status of the Brian Stow case,"
Beck said in a statement Friday. "The Department will continue to pursue leads that may convict a suspect just as vigorously as we pursue those that may exonerate a suspect. I still believe that the arrest of Giovanni Ramirez was appropriate and he is still the primary suspect in this case."

Meanwhile, Ramirez has taken a polygraph test at the advice of his attorney before his transfer to San Diego...
