Billy Chemirmir was a Kenyan convicted of killing 22 women in North Texas, in the United States of America.

He died on Tuesday, September 19, 2030, in a cell he shared with an unnamed individual.

He was 50 years old.

According to, Billy was killed by his cellmate at a Texas prison, information corroborated by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

Another publication in Dallas, WFAA, has alleged that Billy was beaten and stabbed because he insulted his cellmate and his family.

Chemirmir's victims were elderly women living in homes, where he would suffocate them and steal their jewelry among other valuables. alleges Chemirmir, 50, was indicted on 22 capital murder charges: 13 in Dallas County and nine in Collin County.

It further quotes Hannah Haney, a spokeswoman for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, who said Chemirmir was found dead in his cell at the Coffield unit near Tennessee Colony, about 85 miles southeast of Dallas.

Haney said his cellmate is serving a sentence for murder. 

Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzot told The Dallas News on Tuesday. that Chemirmir’s cellmate started beating him after Chemirmir made “inappropriate” comments, sexual in nature, about the cellmate’s children.

The cellmate then dragged Chemirmir out of their cell where a few other inmates were watching but didn’t call for help. 

About 15 to 20 minutes passed before a staff member was alerted.

 They tried to revive Chemirmir, but according to Creuzot he was pronounced dead about 6 a.m.
