‘Tell me why my son is dead’: Groups ask for answers after prison deaths

Advocacy groups are calling for answers in the deaths of three Alabama inmates at Donaldson Correctional Facility within the last three weeks.

Alabamians for Fair Justice, a coalition of several organizations, also wants transparency in the investigation into the prisoners’ deaths. In making the demands, the group released a statement attributed to the mother of one of the prisoners.

“Tell Governor Ivey she will speak to me," said Sandy Ray, mother of Steven Davis, a prisoner who died Saturday. "She will tell me what happened to my son. Her prison reform is not working. I had to do a closed casket because they beat my son so badly. Maybe she needs to let these hurt families run the prisons. She needs our input. They killed my baby. Tell me why my son is dead.”

I noticed that as well. Life sentence for a robbery? Even if it was first degree...
