I don't understand how no one seen or heard anything. I feel like the prison is hiding something. They believe he was hanging 20 mins before they found him.
I will ask my friend in my next letter. I know for fact west hall has very tall ceilings in the cells. A guy hung himself two cells down from my cell in the 90's and no one heard or saw a thing. At certain times of day and during the night. ALL inmates are locked up. Only a couple guards on duty. About every 20 minutes they walk by each cell glancing in. When a guard walks by you know you should have at least 15 minutes to do whatever. Unless an inmate is on a suicide watch list. They can be in a cell by themselves.

Thanks for the info!
I changed my profile to reflect that I am researching this for a potential fiction story, and am not affiliated with the media. I do not want to make anyone uncomfortable.
