A Death in Mississippi, a Lawsuit in Texas

Rolling 2 stories into one here.  First up is a story from Mississippi, where Derek Criddle, a 26-year-old young man in a CCA facility, was stabbed to death during a fight.  Six other prisoners were injured in the scuffle, and two remained hospitalized as of Thursday.

Meanwhile in Texas, the family of a prisoner who died after "the [Brooks County] prison disregarded his very, very serious medical condition" is suing LCS Correctional Services for the wrongful death of Mario Garcia.

  1. I knew Derek Criddle. I was sad to know he didn't make it out of the system alive. I literally recently found out of his murder. I'm still working on finding his burial site. It's really not as easy as it sounds. He didn't deserve 25 years. He didn't deserve to be murdered.
