Another FL #DeadInmate. Today? Last Thursday? WTF, TEGNA?


Second Baker Correctional inmate dies this week

BAKER COUNTY, Fla. — An investigation is underway following the death of an inmate at the Baker Re-Entry Center, authorities told First Coast News.

Inmate Denis Robinson, 50, died in custody at the facility Thursday, according to the Florida Department of Corrections. The medical examiner will determine the cause of death, authorities said.

Baker Re-Entry Center is under the direction of Baker Correctional, where another inmate died in custody Tuesday.

More clear-as-mud reporting from TEGNA‘s First Coast News, formerly a part of Gannett, which specializes in clear-as-mud reporting.

My best guess is that Denis Roberson died today, as the FDoC hasn’t had time to list him as “released” per the online record below. (Released is one hell of a euphemism for dead, isn’t it?)

The other dead inmate that FCN reported on, Antonio Gallashaw, died either Monday or Tuesday, per their previous clear-as-mud reporting.

I again insist that the only thing that’s going to fix Florida prisons penchant for killing inmates is for the prisons to be in federal hands. Our prisons aren’t safe for inmates, and they’re not safe for good corrections officers and other prison personnel.

    • How sad to think that each of us thought the only thing to worry about this week was the possibility that there was no arrest of corrections officer Adrian Hill for gassing, dragging and throwing 18-year-old inmate Phillip Alderman. These two new deaths really, really get to me … their families must feel so betrayed by all the pretenses that everything’s coming up roses at the FDoC.

  4. I’m not positive, but I think Tweets get more attention than emails – @POTUS (President of the United States), @TheJusticeDept, @DOCJulieJones, @FL_Corrections, etc.
