Those people, staff and offenders, i doubt that not anyone there cares about stuff like someone dying. The system has been flawed for too long and we need better rehabilitation alternatives for those of us who make the wrong choices and get caught!

This was my son who was murder in this god for saken place. Yes he done wrong and was doing the time for his crime. But no way did he deserve this and I belive there is more to this then we know. But we will get to the bottom of this. There is no cooperation with the facilty, no information but yet it hit the press before all the family was notified. I belive this is a cover up and justice will be serverd!
I'm a former inmate of wabash valley I served over 6 1/2 years and I promise you the officers are dirty individuals its all a game to them and they don't care about anyone they hurt mind you there are one or two good officers but they get bullied into turning their heads the other way by administration and officers for fear they might lose their jobs I was attacked by the officers twice first time I suffered two broken ribs chipped teeth broken collarbone dislocated arm and was placed in segrigation and hidden was not allowed to talk to anyone until I agreed not to cause trouble the second time I was strangled until I was rendered unconscious mind you im 6ft 1inch and 260 lb three officers held me down even though I wasn't resisting and because I refused to fight them they choked me out and tore a hole in my asophagus now I will struggle to talk for the rest of my life I'm sorry that your son had to experience this place. And that it became his end it is also common for the officers and media to blame and stereotype inmates but prison isn't as bad as it is made out to be people get into trouble under their own accord but unfortunately officers target those individuals that are quiet because they think they are weak. Again I'm sorry and I know that my info may not ease your pain but my prayers are with you and your family god bless you

You can contact Charles Rice or Stanley Wruble attorneys in South Bend Indiana. They are the ones who have gotten my answers regarding the death of my son Patrick Whetstone. Mr. Rice is the main attorney on Patrick Whetstone lawsuit which is progressing quite well I must say.

I am the mother of the deceased inmate. My son was coming home to start a new life. Instead someone took his life. I still have no answers, no explanation. In fact the prison representative who is publishing everything all over the internet, newspapers, television all over the state of Indiana, Rich Larsen, hung up on me when I identified myself and my son's mother and just wanted to know what happened to my son. To this date NO ONE has given me any answers. In fact, I the mother to the deceased, has to hear that my son was killed over the telephone while sitting on the side of the road by someone other than the prison. I am his mother! I am his next of kin. The prison had my contact information. Like his father said previously, our son paid his price for his crime. It was time for him to come home and start anew. He's not just anyone, he's my son and I deserve some answers as to what happened to him just 1 month before his release.
My brother Robert Jason wright aka chops was also killed At walbash. They said in the autopsy that he was over medicated double the limit which caused him to die... I'm sorry for ur loss... But if u know any info about this please let me know thanks and God bleas
