The Alabama Department of Corrections has confirmed the death of yet another incarcerated individual at the state’s largest prison: Limestone Correctional Facility.
A spokesperson for the ADOC confirmed on Tuesday the death of Clarence Jackson, a 34-year-old incarcerated man, at the facility.
Jackson was found unresponsive in his cell on Sunday, the spokesperson said and was taken to the health care unit within the facility.
Healthcare staff attempted life-saving measures on Jackson but were unsuccessful, and he was pronounced dead later that same day.
The ADOC Law Enforcement Services Division is investigating the surrounding circumstances of Jackson’s death.
Jackson is one of two incarcerated men confirmed to have died over the weekend, the first being Kenyon Arrington, a 34-year-old incarcerated man at the facility.
Arrington was the victim of an assault by another incarcerated person on Saturday, according to an ADOC spokesperson, and “became unresponsive” after arriving at the health care unit within the facility. He was pronounced dead later that same day.
19 individuals have died at the facility over a year-long period ending in August, according to the latest statistics released by the ADOC.
