An Alabama, USA inmate died after being beaten, tortured and sexually assaulted in prison for days just two weeks before he was due to be released, according to his family.
Daniel Williams, a 22-year-old dad of two children, was near the end of his one-year sentence for second-degree theft when he was found unresponsive on Oct. 22 at Staton Correctional Facility, two weeks before he died in a hospital, prison officials confirmed to The Post on Monday, November 13.
It was reported as a “possible inmate-on-inmate assault,” two weeks before he eventually died in a hospital, the Alabama Department of Corrections confirmed.
However, Williams’ family claims they were not told until October 25 that he was brain-dead in the hospital and that warden Joseph Headley blamed it on drugs
“I spoke to the warden myself, and he said it’s obviously a drug overdose,” Williams’ stepmom, Taylor Bostic, told the Alabama Political Reporter.
She and Williams’ dad, Terry, “just assumed he got a hold of some bad drugs or something,” she said.
