South Carolina corrections officials ask for independent probe of deadly Lee prison melee

"At the request of South Carolina corrections officials, an independent, outside investigation will be conducted into a riot this week that left seven inmates dead and 22 others injured at a Lee County prison.

The state asked a national prison directors group for help in assessing South Carolina's deadliest prison episode in modern history and recommending possible changes. The probe, which will be headed by a former Texas prisons chief, will be in addition to an internal review and a criminal investigation of the incident run by the State Law Enforcement Division, Corrections Director Bryan Stirling said.

"To have an outside, independent look at this just seemed like the right thing to do under the circumstances," he said."
