Five of the prisoners were killed, and an unknown number of others were wounded in an outbreak of violence in the Mississippi prison system, between Oct. 29, 2019, Feb. 3. Three of the five deaths were at Parchman. Two other inmates broke out of the troubled facility earlier this month, but they were all taken prisoner.
The prisoner, Gabriel, Carmen, was found hanging in his cell at Parchman on Tuesday night. Sunflower County Coroner Heather Burton said of the corrections officers stated that the prisoner had been furious and throwing a stool in the time of his death.
A statement from Burton’s office, said that Carmen was last seen by corrections officers during a security check at 6:20 pm
For a person to clean up the hall alerted the two of the corrections officers about 20 minutes later, Carmen was hanging, and the officers immediately ran to check on him, and the coroner’s office added.
“They’ve been trying to get into the cell, but the cell’s lock was jammed from the inside with a pipe and the assailant had been removed from the bathroom,” the statement said. “Care to respond in order to assist in the opening of the door of the cell, (let the medical staff].”
