Description

"Ifeanyi A. Iko, a 51-year-old Nigerian immigrant, was found dead in his cell on April 30 at Western Correctional Institution near Cumberland, Maryland. The authorities have refused to disclose nearly any information about his death, citing an internal investigation and an ongoing review by the FBI. But two Sun reporters followed up on his death, interviewed inmate witnesses by phone and by correspondence, obtained copes of policies and procedures through information requests, and developed a comparison of how Iko should've been treated vs. how he was really treated by correctional officers."
