Unhappy i am so sorry for your loss

I am so sorry for your loss I cant even imagine. This worries me so much as I have not heard from my bf for over 3 weeks and that is not like him. I do not believe that he is in trouble, how would I even find that out? I will pray for your family and for your loved one. Again I am so very sorry

I haven't yet introduced myself to this forum..but let me do so in part now. I've been dealing with the U.S. jail and prison system in this country specific to health care and death issues for over 20 years. I am not affiliated with any law enforcement agency, DOC or BOP facility. My reason for joining it was to see the type of problems inmates are continuing to have and what you as family members are being forced to accept and endure.

There is much you can still do and frankly, you've got a lot more power to do something than you might think. When they don't give you information at all--from the date of his death until today, there is a definite reason as to why they're not providing information to you. And there is much information that you should be going after. Just remember you're entitled to very specific information surrounding his death; however, the system does not want you aware of that fact. The more they can keep you in the dark, the better. Doing so all works to their advantage--not yours. And more oftentimes than not families are clueless as to what they can do when an inmate is sick, dying or has died. If you'd like to talk further, I'm more than willing to do so.

You know I just was to a point of crazy myself untill i opened this thread to see if anything i mean anything was here and you wrote this Thank you and yes I need someone to talk to .Today we called and asked can we come and pick up his belongings and talked with warrden was told not releasing anything to us or anyone come in 3 days to pick up his stuff we asked arent you done with your investagation was told yes on the prision end but still wont let us know anything they havent told us anything just that he was taken by paramedics he was doa was told then revived found out from doctor on that but still doctor wont tell us what happen condition as was it from someone something other than natural we know that he didnt have any blood left in him so we know something bad happen but no one will tell us anything. We dont know what to do anymore we dont have big bucks to hire lawyers to find out they know this You can only hope someone will post something on update on his death like being investagated of homicide or suicide or anything but it still just sits there saying same thing a month later took by paramedics there stuff they are making shine by now and we dont know how to get in there to find a way to find out

They will not release anything: information or belongings, until the State Police have finished their investigation. The State Police investigation is separate from the Prison's investigation.

They also won't release anything until the Medical Examiner has signed off on the death certificate, which won't happen until the ME is sure of the findings.

You have the ability to petition for information through the freedom of information act, however, they don't finalize the paperwork until after the ME has released a death certificate citing cause of death and the ME won't do that until the State Police are finished with their investigation since the corpus is considered evidence until the Police investigation is wrapped up.

It is a horrible situation to be in. Absolutely hell on the family. But if someone intentionally caused his death, then the Police need to have time to conduct a full investigation and make certain they have all the facts before charging someone with murder.

I do feel your pain, and I know you want fast answers. I would want fast answers too, in your situation.

“Do you not know that a man is not dead while his name is still spoken?”

― Terry Pratchett, from his novel Going Postal

He will not truly die until all those who knew him are also dead. He will be with you for the rest of your life.

It sounds like he was poisoned. For such a sudden onset of abdomen pain then death, sounds like poison to me.

Without access to the post mortem, sudden onset of abdominal pain can mean many things. Poison is a possibility, as is "bloat" (they call it that in dogs, I don't know if there's a human term for it, however, I do know someone who nearly died of it in prison), as is lung cancer (it was the first symptom my Dad showed before he died from stage IV lung cancer), as is gall stones, as is... many many other things.

Some causes could be nefarious, some causes could be completely natural. Either way, it doesn't matter at this point. What does matter is that Tanya4Tipton's loved one is gone, she is grieving, and she is having difficulty getting answers or a even getting her loved one's remains so she can have a proper funeral and be able to start the process of closure. Because it doesn't feel real until on has their loved one's remains back.

Speculation will do no good at this point, and very much unfortunately for Tanya4Tipton, there is little she can do other than wait.

Tanya4Tipton, please do update us when you have news worth sharing and know we're here for you.

You're doing all that you can. Prison chaplain, the warden (or however they named the guy in charge of the prison), the Medical Examiner's office, the state police... those are the folks to be talking to to get information, and I'm sure you've already spoken with them.

ACLU will take on cases like this, though right now they're awfully busy with the chaos surrounding the immigration ban. But it doesn't hurt to call and leave a message.

I'm glad you gave us an update, Tanya, but I'm really saddened for you that you have no answers yet. Do you have a death certificate yet? If so, that means that you should be able to get answers from the coroner's office. You can also petition for a public records release to get the documentation of the investigation, but only if the investigation is complete.

You have my heartfelt sympathy.
