An inmate, who was identified as George Wilson, at the Monrovia Central Prison, was found dead in his cell Monday, October 6, morning, according to a senior prison officer.
Abana Paye, who is the prison’s superintendent, alleged that the man was pronounced dead alone and unresponsive on Monday morning in his locked jail, after undergoing several medical treatments.
The death is under investigation, but at this time, the Superintendent said there does not appear to be any sign of foul play.
The deceased had been detained since 2013 following the commission of the crime of rape, and had not been arraigned before any court to hear the case.
The cause of his death has not been made public by a medical doctor, but Supt. Paye hinted to the Daily Observer that he died from Tuberculoses
(TB), and HIV Aids.
“George Wilson has been undergoing medical treatment at his cell for TB and HIV Aids,” he alleged.
“When his friends noticed that he was dead, they contacted us and we likewise informed the Ebola Task Force,” Paye emphasized.
“It was the Task Force, who told us that he did not die from Ebola,” adding “what I know is that he had been suffering from TB and HIV AIDS.”
