Jul 31, 2008 News Comments Off on Death at Camp Street prison… Victim died from blunt trauma to head
A post mortem examination has revealed that Nolan Noble, an inmate of the Camp Street penitentiary, died as a result of blunt forced trauma to his head.
Kaieteur News was unable to get a comment from prison authorities yesterday on the circumstances surrounding Noble’s death.
Reports state that Noble, a 36-year-old who was incarcerated on a murder charge, died at the hospital on Saturday after he was found unconscious.
Kaieteur News understands that a relative, who saw the body at a city mortuary, alleged that Noble’s body bore wounds to the back of the head and over one of the eyes.
This newspaper was told that Noble was mentally unstable and was taking medication for his condition.
Noble was remanded a few years ago in connection with the stabbing to death of a Linden basketball player.
His death occurred even as police officials continue to investigate the death of prison inmate Edwin Niles, who died at the Georgetown Hospital on July 11.
Niles, who was incarcerated on a narcotics charge, was admitted to the hospital on July 3 with a broken arm and burns on his shoulders, back and buttocks.
The inmate’s relatives have alleged that he was tortured by prison officers who were interrogating him about seven .22 rounds of ammunition that were found in his possession.
On March 24, 2007, Gavin McDonald, an inmate who was on remand for allegedly stabbing a taxi driver to death, died in the Georgetown Prison under suspicious circumstances.
Post mortem results stated that McDonald died from haemorrhage and shock due to blunt trauma.
Police sources also told Kaieteur News that McDonald, 34, of 6 Ketley and Drysdale Streets, Charlestown, also a broken ribs and severe injuries to his upper chest.
More than a year has passed and no one has been charged in connection to that incident.
