A second incarcerated individual died at Bibb Correctional Facility over the previous week, according to a spokesperson for the Alabama Department of Corrections.
Danny Wayne Moore, a 56-year-old incarcerated man at the Bibb County facility, was pronounced dead on Dec. 17, according to a spokesperson for the ADOC.
On Saturday, Moore was walking to the health care unit at Bibb Correctional Facility when he collapsed, the spokesperson said. Paramedics were called, and medical staff began life-saving measures, with those measures eventually failing. Moore was pronounced dead later that same day.
As with all cases of death in the state’s incarcerated population, the ADOC’s Law Enforcement Services is investigating Moore’s case.
Moore was the second incarcerated man to die at the Bibb County Facility over the previous week, with both deaths being the first confirmed since September of this year, according to the most recent statistical data published by the ADOC.
Earl Crenshaw, a 43-year-old incarcerated man at Bibb Correctional Facility, told a correctional officer on Thursday that he was not feeling well and later, while he was being escorted to the healthcare unit, “became unresponsive,” a spokesperson for the ADOC said at the time.
After correctional staff attempted life-saving measures to no avail, Crenshaw was pronounced dead later that same day.
Three incarcerated individuals, including Moore, have been confirmed dead at the facility since September of this year.
