An investigation of New York state prisons by the Poughkeepsie Journal revealed that "many inmates had lenghty histories of mental illness." The newspaper found that 38.5 percent of prison suicides occured in "The Box," even though only 4.4 percent of prisoners were housed there. "Another 15 percent occured in another form of disciplinary confinement, where just 3.6 percent of inmates were housed."
