Second Guyanese Prisoner Dies In Suspicious Manner.

In prison abuse on August 3, 2008 at 12:17 pm

Mere weeks following the death in custody of prisoner Edward Niles, another Guyanese prisoner, Nolan Noble, was pronounced dead on arrival at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation on 26th July 2008.

Noble was an inmate at the Camp Street jail facility and despite claims by some sources that he died in his cell during his sleep, a post-mortem revealed that he died of blunt force trauma to the head.

There were reports that there was a suspicious mark on his forehead and another behind his head. Hospital sources reported that they were told that the man was epileptic and may have had an attack during which he fell and hit his head. When he arrived at the hospital, blood was oozing from his nose but according to reports there were no marks of violence on the body.

Noble had been suffering from mental illness induced by drug abuse for 11 years and had had several brushes with the law, the most recent being a charge of murder. However, his younger brother has stated that the deceased never suffered from epilepsy.

Noble’s relatives are calling for a full investigation into his death due to the conflicting reports they have so far received.
