Letter from WSPF prisoner:
Another prisoner has died here at WSPF.
Mr. Lornell Evans #385275 on Foxtrot unit cell # 106 on October 2, 2005 Sunday.
Here’s a short run down so please investigate and get the word out. Some prisoner said Mr. Evans had some kind of cancer – prostrate cancer or stomach cancer and he had an operation 2 or 3 weeks ago. One brutha said Mr. Evans was about 210 lbs. and within weeks he was 150 lbs.
Now on October 1, 2005 around 5:00 pm, Sgt. Sickinger stop at Mr. Evans door and asked him why he was not eating. Evans stated ‘I can’t eat because my stomach hurt’. Sgt. S.r stated: ‘Well if you don’t eat I have to write up a report’, then she told him he was off back of cell. This is the last time I heard Mr. Evans talk. He was not on medical observation, we don’t know why, after a major operation.
Now Mr. Anthony Stevens #288268 in Cell 107 next door to Mr. Evans said he was asking the c.o.’s for ice and they would not bring it to him, I guess H.S.U. (Health Service Unit) got him on an ice restriction where he get ice from them when he need it.
Now October 2, 2005 to my knowledge Mr. Evans did not eat lunch or dinner, no one checked on him at 11:15 am count, at 3:30 pm medication pass c/o Taylor passed him up, no check on him, 4:15 pm count; Sgt. Patton did count no check, at 4:20 pm dinner, Sgt. Patton, Sgt. Cook and another c.o. passed him up; and about two minutes later they came back beating on Mr. Evans’ door, calling his name over and over. About 4:35 pm they suited up on Mr. Evans and did a cell entry running in there yelling and screaming and when they drag him out the cell, c.o Sc. said ‘no pulse.’ Then they did an emergency count, knocking on everybody’s door, making sure they move. Lt. G., and nurse M. was down – other prisoners said Mr. Lornell Evans’ body was stiff when he was dragged out -there no way Mr. Evans should have been back here and that sick: and staff and nurses should have checked on him every 15 minutes.
