DailyKenn.com — Officials at Staton Correctional Facility in Alabama have explaining to do.
The father of a 22-year-old was told his son, an inmate at the facility, died from a drug overdose. Medical professionals, however, said Daniel Terry Williams had been beaten, tortured, and raped.
The incident occurred just days before Williams was to be released. He had served a one-year term for Theft of Property II. He was looking forward to moving forward with his life and reunited with his two small children, both under two years old.
A description of the attackers was not released.
