According to a report by WWL Radio, a 28-year-old prison inmate died this morning. On Saturday, the unidentified male inmate had suffered a medical issue in his cell and was found unresponsive just after lunch on Saturday. Prison security and medical staff immediately initiated lifesaving treatment and continued until EMS arrived. The inmate was taken to the hospital via ambulance.
The sheriff’s office told WWL that there were no signs that the inmate had been in a fight or that he had harmed himself. He had been in jail for at least a year on an attempted murder charge.
An investigation is underway.
Help Keep Big Easy Magazine Alive
I just wanted to provide an update to where we stand today. A few days ago, we launched a fundraising effort to keep Big a Easy Magazine alive. We determined we would need to raise $10,000, which represents 1/10 of the personal investment I made into the publication. As it stands now, we have raised just over $300 and have set a fundraising deadline of midnight June 1st. Please help us meet our goal. I promise you with your support if we reach our goal, you will be able to continue seeing progressive content about the issues that matter. If we don’t meet our goal, well, in all honesty, those who have an interest in our demise will have won the battle. When we launched the fundraising effort, we got bombarded with remarks such as “see ya,” and “lol.” We cannot allow them to win. Please donate today to keep us alive and support progressive media.
Thank you, Scott Ploof Publisher Big Easy Magazine
