If this man died while under the supervision of Navaho County jail personnel in a Navaho County Park why was Holbrook PD the only agency involved at the scene? Where was the County Sheriffs Dept? Don't they operate the Navaho County Jail? The word is that this man had some sort of seizure. It is rare for a person to die from a seizure. I would say that in order to do a complete investigation the county and the city would have to do more than perform a toxicology test! After all, this man died under the care of the Navaho County Jail.

I have a brother in navajo county jail who has brain damage. He can't make definite decisions for himself, how can the courts sentence him?

this really need to be investigated, and by an independent agency along with the county, sheriffs office, and the police department. Why was a person with seizures on a work detail?

It is a sad fact that in Navajo County the courts are geared to opperate against you. They generate their budget by sticking the people who are unable to defend themselves in jail/prison. I hope your brother gets lucky and is able to get out of there. That is by far the most corrupt court/legal system opperating in the state of AZ.

Navajo County Jail is the worsest place to end up in. Talk about justice..everybody is treated unfair. I hope the Navajo County Jail gets a big law suit.

My son was there that day on work detail when this kid died. I talked with him that night, it was our understand he had had an arguement with his girlfriend, and was under the impression he had hung himself. No inmate IS allowed to work alone???? Someone think
Was a drug overdose

It was a drug overdose, he was not being supervised by Navajo County Officers but by Jose that runs the place. I am not sure anyone could have done anything to help him live though. But I am 100% it was an overdose.

This post was in response to a post Ashley put on. But looks like nobody wants to hear her side. I wonder who took it off. She said that Damian never touched her.

Many of these comments are not even related to this issue... But truth be told- if you're a pedophile. It's everyone's business! If this man was not convicted, then let it alone. Rumors will always be there, if indeed this is a bad man- justice will prevail. Just got to some have faith in God. God Bless.

Pictures don't lie. People & your heart does. Damian may love his children, but 2 of them aren't his and they obviously aren't his world if he could steal more time from them and left their mother to raise them alone. I pray for her and the kids. No mother should have to endure the heartache he brought. May God Bless her and send her an angel.

I agree about the mother-useless, insecure and 3 daddys......screams pathetic. The oldest and youngest are not biologically his. If the oldest was his, that would mean he had her when her was 11 or 12. So didn't happen. Regardless what anyone thinks, he was convicted.

The oldest isn't his by blood but that's her father and he has been the only father she has ever known. Yes he was convicted for something that he didn't do. I have faith that this amazing father will be out soon. I'm pretty sure he will keep fighting it he can always appeal it and hopefully he does just that. God bless him and his four children.
