Default Inmate death at EKCC

These stories make me sick to my stomach. No one should die in any prison under any circumstances. May the family find answers and peace.


(LEX 18) The family of a man found brain dead in the Eastern Kentucky Correctional Complex says that they believe there is more to this story than what they are being told.

Edwin Dishman, 30, had been serving time for a parole violation for three weeks. On Wednesday, his family got a phone call that he had tried to hang himself and was brain dead in the hospital.

His family says that story doesn’t add up.

That is terrible news , sending condolences to the family and friends of the deceased.

Order the highway patrol investigation under public records request. (Order kentucky sunshine law from attorney general) Will take about 30 days to complete. Plus follow the body, contact coroners office. In Ohio they play slick, and every inmate dies at the hospital because the hospital doctor signs off on body. So only 4 inmates due a year at prison. Last year inmate has chest pains, officer refused to call medical did count, inmate died. We got calls. I called coroners office, and the has body said he died at OSU. I told her he was never there he died at pickaway. So she told me a lieutenant called them from medical center and they (ODRC) had a doctor to sign off on him, so they got the body before an autopsy could be done, then it went to Smith's funeral home and cremated so any evidence is destroyed.
