Has anyone tried contacting the CAO?(Community Action Organization) I don't know if they are over the jail but I would find out. They are the "Lawrence County Mafia Leaders". I was part of the picketing at the hospital when administration was embezzelling money and 3 years later the hospital closed. Look where it's at now!! The CAO was the "rulers" of what happened in Lawrence County. Everything had to go through them. I am an RN and yes you absolutely can die from withdrawal! Xanax especially! I hope Steven's family find justice for his untimely death! It could have been prevented absolutely! God bless you!!

I have been doing some research. I have confirmed each of these people were in jail with him. I saw that 2 of them have since been released. Can you or someone point us in the right direction to contact any of these people? Please [email protected]

<quoted text>You are welcome and we are so sorry for your loss. I was able to get some of the full names of the inmates: Ben Stafford, Terry Thacker, Carey or Kerry Coleman( not sure of spelling), and Chuck Waddle. There are at least 3 others that I know are willing to go on the record and help you. More information and specific details that I have been able to scribble down in rushed phone conversations that are sometimes disconnected 3 or more times and always when this matter is being discussed will be forthcoming. I fear for the person's safety that has told me all of this even though he says he does not care and that your family needs justice. He will not be there much longer though and I was able to get Steven's brother Ben's address from the internet.

These people you seek would be cutting their own throat in this county for doing what you want them to do. Be gentle.

I thoroughly understand the risk...but I also believe they may realize next time it may be them or someone they love. This needs stopped. There has been too many....I am only asking what anyone else in this position would be asking...he was my only sibling...I shared my childhood with him. He has 2 small children who now will grow up without their father because of the negligence of that shit hole. So please. We are asking for answers, we are asking for this to never happen to anyone else. Anyone else spend part of their Christmas choking back tears and then crying in the cold at the cemetery?

If complaints were filed within your family and it is documented that your brother was asking for help per your family, this isnt going to be hard to prove! Of course, you can use all of the help that you can get and I dont blame you at all for asking. Just trust me, this is going to be UGLY! Hang in there and I am sorry for your loss! Justice will be served in this situation!

We DO know what you are going through and we are going to help you as much as we can as soon as he is moved to another facility which hopefully will not be much longer!. His lawyer advised us that this would be best, even though he was not with your brother at the exact moment of his passing he was witness to the sequence of events leading right up to - the lawyer knows everything that I do and another client of his that was with Steven has told him the same story.I do have the officers names involved and details. I believe he told me that Coleman was sentenced to prison so he would have been moved to CRC up around Circleville. It is the prison processing center where all inmates are sent and are given their prisoner numbers before they are sent out into the prisons. They are not allowed any contact with anyone for the first week or two though. I mentioned Coleman because he is the one that actually called out for help when Steven finally collapsed. Hopefully if questioned he will provide you with details- he was not there when the investigator from the Buckeye Sheriff's Association was there for the second time last week and I'm not sure if he was still there and questioned the first time. I knew some were released but you might check the state prison offender search to try to contact the others. Hope this helps, your family is in our prayers.

Thank you for your continued information and I understand waiting for the best interest of the inmate. We appreciate your continued update and I pray we are provided with answers soon. I will research CRC's database for Coleman. I am at a stand still with Terry Thacker (does he have another legal name?). And Chuck Waddle. Anymore information is appreciated. God Bless you all....

Trust me, you are not the only one who has cried in the cold at the cemetery as a result of Ironton/Law. Co. negligence. All I have to say is, "Good luck." If you have 50 witnesses, it isn't going to matter. Not to be mean, just giving you the cold, hard facts. You think you will never get over it but with the passage of time, it gets a little easier. I feel for you and your family but you are fighting a battle than you will not win. It is unfortunate, but true. Try to embrace your family, cherish your memories and accept the facts that you cannot change. My sympathy for your horrible loss.

There you go- if he would have received medical treatment/ IV antibiotics he more than likely would have lived.

I knew this was what is was going to be. I really pity the person/person responsible for this! Actually, I dont! They get exactly what they deserve. To his family: I cant imagine your heartbreak and I am so sorry. However, someone is in for it. And for whoever said he was going to die anyway----YOU ARE AN IDIOT! Why dont you read about "infections of the heart" as it is listed. It doesnt matter what caused it. What matters is that human beings deserve to be treated like human beings! This young man HAD to be sick for days prior to this happening! What in the hell is wrong with people? I hope they bury the ones liable for this under the jail! Maybe withhold their food for about a week and not give them a blanket when it is 20 degrees. After all, it wouldnt be the jails fault that they died of hypothermia, now would it? I wonder how they would feel? Justice will be served in this case. Hang in there. Justice will be served. This is NOT a hard case to prove at all! The question is, who will be charged with what. That will take time.

This is really sad. I bet he had a high fever with this too. What are the other inmates saying about this? How long did he actually tell deputies that he was feeling sick? They should ALL be prosecuted if they ignored him. Did they really throw him in the drunk tank to shut him up? WOW.

Many different medical conditions affect the heart and can be very serious in nature if not diagnosed and treated properly. Some medical conditions that inflict the heart can be found at birth or during childhood and can be treated with medications. As we get older we have an increased risk of developing serious medical conditions of the heart that might become life-threatening. One of the serious medical conditions that affect the heart is endocarditis and this could become a life-threatening infection.
Endocarditis is a very serious medical condition that occurs in one of the four heart valves and it can be life-threatening. Endocarditis occurs when there is bacterial growth on one of the four heart valves which can lead to an infected mass known as vegetation. The bacterial infection of the heart valve could be related to having bacteria in your bloodstream which can occur after an operation or surgical procedure. Endocarditis could also be caused by intravenous drug use and not using sterile hypodermic needles. The bacteria from the needle or dirty cotton can end up being shot through the bloodstream and lead an infection to the heart. Endocarditis usually is difficult do diagnose at first because the symptoms are very common for other medical conditions. He may have had this condition a very long time. There is no guarantee he could have been saved 3 days before either.

I appreciate your explanation of endocarditis but I am very familiar with healthcare and fully aware of all diseases. No need to talk to me like I am an uneducated individual.(You responded to my post, so I am assuming that is who you were talkign to). I am well educated and I know that this young man begged for help, obviously didnt receive it and from what I have been told his mother filed complaints because they would not help him. So this is clearly a case of neglect if he did ask for help and it went to the point that the mother was filing things.

And just how many people have you taken care of that had endocarditis? I find your posting amusing as if you are looking for a reason to justify this young mans death. You are not talking to an idiot! I do not recall his family stating that he had a heart defect from birth which is NORMALLY treated not long after birth and I am confident if the jail knew he did they would have sent him for help before he dropped! So that information is irrelevant! It really doesnt matter how the "infection of the heart valve" got there as we should use in slang terms and I believe that most, including his family probably know (for the most part) the reason. Do you really think his family is not learning all that they can?

It was there. The man was sick and had been in jail for 2 months. Had he been treated, the chances that he would have lived are very HIGH! You might want to check your NEXT internet site to recite from. It is in my head because I know it and learned it long ago. So please stop reciting information that really doesnt matter. Nobody cares!

The young man was sick. He begged for help and from what I am reading, so did his family. It is obvious that he wasnt given help or he would not have dropped into cardiac arrest! THIS IS NEGLECT!

No he did not have any pre-existing heart problems...yes we are very aware it was most likely drug use that caused it and that isn't the issue. The issue at hand is neglect...thank you for your support. Most people don't are because it isn't their family (brother, dad, uncle) I suppose we can't blame them for their ignorance...justice will be served for the neglect causing the death of my only brother.....

Excellent definition of the cause of death. You know nothing about my brother, nothing. There is no guarantee, that u r right. But there's that chance that was taken for him due to their neglect. He was in there 2 months and never complained of anything. He went through withdraws with no attention. He never complained if the guards or any inmate. He faced up and was ready to pay his debt to society for his crimes which I have to say none of which were punishable by death. The one time he asked for anything because he knew something wasn't right, no one cared. For 3 days he begged in pain. He had a fever he knew he did. He was having chest pains, he was sick and only asked for medical attention...they put him in the tank to shut him up and he collapsed and died...so now u have part of the story not that it would change your simple mind...he ha a problem, he made mistakes. He was human...the chance was there had he gotten treatment he may still be here with us and his 4 year old son and 2 year old daughter, and again he may not but at least he'd have been given a chance to live....
