Welcome to Prison Talk - glad you decided to join us!

I hope someone familiar with this facility & its current status will chime in soon about the possible lockdown; maybe you could also try and call them directly and see if they might confirm it from the facility. Good luck

Sarianna, if you find anything out please post. I haven't heard from Brett in over a month. Also highly unusual although he has gone underground before i. e. depression. He's had LWOP since he was an 8th grader. He's on year 13. However due to Miller v. Alabama he is in court for an illegal sentence. He has not contacted his lawyer either. SMCI doesn't allow lawyer calls. The inmate must call the lawyer. We've sent him a letter asking him to call. But not a word. If you know anything about the stabbing let me know. Thanks. Truthfully, I hate calling the prison and will only do it with a gun to my head

My husband is also there & I haven't heard from him either. He has told me that they have trouble with the phones sometimes when it rains, so I'm not sure if they are off due to the lockdown or the weather.

I was told everything is on lockdown including phones and the person stabbed is still alive. I have no first hand knowledge.

Default SMCI Lockdown

I was heading to visit my brother in SMCI and got a call from my father. He had been told at gate they are on Institutional Lockdown. Gave no other info. I usually get a call from my brother Thur or Fri and did not. Their phones always work well so phones must be included.

Thanks this is helpful. I wonder how long this lockdown had been in affect and for how long it will be in affect? It's been 6weeks since I or anyone has heard anything from this inmate who calls regularly. Please post any updates if possible. Thanks very much.
