Rikers Inmate “Baked to Death” in Overheated Cell | breakingbrown.com

Post By RelatedRelated Post

A mentally ill inmate at Rikers passed away in an overheated cell just one day after officials at the prison had requested repairs for the heating problem.

The Associated Press reports that two requests for repairs were made on February 14 but delayed due to a holiday weekend. Since the following Monday was President’s Day, the request for the repairs wasn’t received until the following Tuesday.

Former Marine Jerome Murdough, 56, had been arrested one week before his death for trespassing onto a Harlem public housing project while seeking shelter from the cold. Authorities at Rikers found him dead in a pool of his own blood and vomit on February 15 with a body temperature of 103 degrees.
