One incarcerated man is confirmed to have been found dead over the weekend and several more incidents are awaiting a response from ADOC.

Tyfeeq Moore died on July 1 while incarcerated at the Frank Lee Youth Center. Moore’s death was announced on Facebook by his mother, Shafeequah Moore. APR reached out to ADOC about Moore’s passing and is still awaiting a response.

Shafeequah also posted a GoFundMe to help with costs associated with burying him. Moore was a father of two daughters and was two weeks away from coming home before his unexpected passing, according to the GoFundMe description written by Moore’s brother Lamin.

Moore’s cause of death is still unknown at the time of this publication. While Moore’s death has been confirmed there are still potentially more individuals who died or at the very least were injured while incarcerated since last Friday. There have been multiple reports of other incarcerated individuals suffering drug overdoses or violence from other incarcerated people.

APR has reached out to ADOC about these incidents and awaits an update on their status. Two of the reported incidents came from the Donaldson Correctional Facility. If both of the individuals are confirmed to be dead that would make over 6 deaths to have occurred at the Donaldson facility in approximately two weeks. 

There is also video of someone being life flighted following a violent attack and stabbing by other incarcerated individuals according to sources inside Donaldson.

Moore’s death marks at least 62 people who have died while incarcerated this year. Yet, that number could already be higher depending on the information ADOC provides on several other individuals.

Approximately 43 people have died in Alabama prisons since the beginning of 2024.


A federal complaint alleges that the family of a deceased incarcerated person had their loved one’s body returned in a decomposing state.


It has been over two weeks since the officer's death and ADOC still has not contacted the officer's mother about her death.


“Something with that policy needs to change, and it needs to change now,” Crafton said.
