My son, Jason, died at Two Rivers on June 21, 2004.
they told us that he commited suicide.
I have heard since that he was being held down to be given an injection, and that is how he died, and that it was covered up.
I know that people that are there know what happened.
I don't need to know people's names. Just if they heard a different story about how Jason died.
Jason was 24 years old. He died 8 days after his birthday. He had only been there about two months. He didn't deserve this. And in fact if they did indeed cause his death, those guards do not need to be working there. If they get away with killing Jason, then they can get away with it again. They need to be stopped.
So, if any one would ask their loved ones, in person, not in a letter, I don't want any one saying anything that could be seen or heard by a guard, if they heard what happened to my Jason and they could relay it to me I would be so very appreciative.
Thank you so much for any thing that any one could do.
Margaret1, I'll ask around the prison activist circles, perhaps something was said. There are some who will stand up for what is right despite the consequences...they are the activists and anarchists. And prison is where government likes to send those who disagree with them. I hope for your sake, that an anarchist was a witness, because he is likely to defy the authorities and tell it all anyway. I will send you a private msg if I have any luck for you. I'm sorry for your loss. but I can never ease your pain. I wish I could.
I wish I could be of help to you, I don't know anyone in Two RIvers. I am very sorry for your loss! My 16 yr old cousin was murdered in 2003 and because of his age and the "shooters" age and status in the community the man got off scott free while we were left dealing with the news who made Tony out to be nothing but a trouble maker who deserved to die- NOt the case!!! So I have a somewhat similiar situation, but like I said he was my cousin, not as heartbreaking as a son! I wish you the best in your pursuit of the truth!!!

Why is it that half of the people in Prison don't deserve to be there and half of the people walking the streets should be locked up???
My suggestion is to hire a good private investigator! The based on what they find sue the prison! I know it won't bring your son back but it will expose the truth. The PI knows ways to get access to prisoners (witnesses), either directly or through their family members.
I just wanted to say that I am truely sorry about what happened to your son I hope that somehow you can find out what REALLY happened to your son..and get some closure! IF it was the guards that did this...I hope they are charged with this crime...I am SORRY!!!
I am so sorry for your loss. My boyfriend is at TRCI and along with a few friends of ours. I will talk to him next Sunday and see if he knows anything for you. If I find anything out I will PM you. You and your family will be in my prayers tonight. God Bless.
My fiancee has been at two rivers since 2001 i'm sure he would of heard something but because i cant be with him right now because i currently live in australia i cant see him in person and talk to him about it. so i will try my hardest to ask him some how the safest i can. he has mentioned a few times about loosing people on his unit but hasnt been able to tell me how. but i'll see what i can do without getting him in trouble or myself. i hope i can help you.
:love: Your my favorite thing. The one that I love. Your the one that I'd die for your love
First off i would like to extend my deepest sympathy for the loss of your son, i know that dealing with a loved one in prison is hard enough, but to actually loose someone and not know the reasoning behind it i cant even imagine i'm so sorry. My husband has been at TRCI for 7 mo. now and has two years to go I visit him often but i am five hours away and with winter blessing us with ice and snow my visits are fewer until the weather changes. I know a mothers intuition is always rite and you should follow your instincts, the guards there are very crule i hear they are the worst in Oregon, i'm very scared for my man but he seems to do ok. When i visit i will mention what i heard and see what i can come up with. Until then chin up and try to smile your son knows what you are doing for him and loves you very much and one day you will find the true story behind his death. Please write me back if you need to talk. I will let you know what i hear.
I am so sorry for your loss!! I know how hard it is at this time of the year having one of my son's IN prison,I could not imagine how hard it is for you and your family to have such a thing as this happen (at ANY time let alone Christmas!) I hope that you find out the truth of the matter,and if the "system" was at fault,that they pay for what happened.I try really hard to believe that "What comes around,goes around",although sometimes... My sincerest wishes go out to you and your family,and I pray that you your answers!
