Medical Abuse/Neglect and Suicide

 

 

 

 

Excerpted From "Two inmates commit suicide, officials say"

Just after midnight yesterday, convicted murderer Eduardo Soto, 33, was found hanging by a bed sheet at Old Colony Correctional Center in Bridgewater.

State Correction Department spokeswoman Diane Wiffin said [his death] did not stem from larger problem in the prison system. "Any death in prison is an unfortunate and sad occurence, but these aren't related," she said. "We extend our sympathies to the families and the staff who tried to keep them alive."

Wiffin would not indicate whether... Soto suffered from mental health problems.

Soto was sentenced in 1991 to life in prison after a second-degree murder conviction.
