Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb., 1895
California, USA
Death: Nov. 5, 1915
Folsom
Sacramento County
California, USA

Loomis, age 20 and a convicted murderer, was executed at Folsom Prison by hanging. He had killed Mrs. Marie Holcroft who had resisted his efforts to rob a candy shop. Along with two other inmates convicted for murder, Earl escaped from his cell in the prison's dungeon and tried to cut the way through the bars to freedom by means of two hacksaws. The three never made it outside the prison walls and were quickly recaptured.

Earl was the youngest son of William and Virginia Loomis. His father was shot to death in 1897 by a constable when trying to escape custody. Earl's siblings were Boyd, Arthur, Charles, Warren, Pearl, and Ernest.
