A Deadly July For Arkansas Prisoners

Aug 5, 2015 | by admin

There have been twenty-three prison deaths from January 2015 through June 2015… Eleven deaths in July, alone.

In January, prison officials stopped releasing a specific cause of death for inmates. Instead, each death is classified as “natural causes” unless there are special circumstances that would lead to an Arkansas State Police investigation.

There have been 34 Arkansas prison deaths since Jan. 1; there were 56 deaths in 2014.
