Unhappy Prison Death Said Suicide

The death late Thursday night of an inmate at the East Arkansas Regional Unit [EARU] in Lee County is an apparent suicide, the Associated Press reported in today's edition of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

The inmate is identified as Kevin Blake, 42, of Faulkner County. He was serving a six-year-long sentence for making a terroristic threat and would have been eligible for parole in October 2010.

An Arkansas DOC spokesperson said EARU guards late Thursday found the man had hanged himself with a bedsheet in his one-man cell. Despite medical efforts to revive Blake, he was pronounced dead some time before midnight. The spokesperson added Blake had not exhibited any suicidial tendencies.

I seriously doubt that was a suicide. Just another cover up of the corruption of the system.

Question Yep!

I agree the death makes one wonder. I was doing that as I wrote the original post.

I know of another suppossed "suicide" that happened about a year and a half ago. I was told by someone that was actually at Brickeys at the time that it happened that is was not a suicide. Kinda sad that all these guys are requried to do is time and they end up giving more.
