A NYC Man Bakes to Death in Prison
 
Another shameful example of how the prison industry fails to protect the most helpless citizens...

Sidenote. I fail to see why his family would let him be homeless to begin with. Those responsible for this death should get in big trouble, but dang the guy fought for his country and had issues, but no home. Sad

Didn't see where he ever told anybody he was hot.

A ****ing disgrace in this nation when we let those who have fought for us get to this point.

Alma Murdough said she hadn't learned of her son's death until the AP contacted her last week, nearly a month after he died. His public defender was told of the death three days after the inmate was found, the DOC said.

When he returned from the service, his family said, both his mental illness and thirst for alcohol became more pronounced, and he would often disappear for months at a time, finding warmth in hospitals, shelters and on the streets.
"When he wanted to venture off, we let him, we allowed him to come and go," recalled his sister, Cheryl Warner. "He always came back."
