29-Year-Old Florida Death Row Inmate Found Dead

From News4Jax.com

“A 29-year-old Jacksonville man on death row for two counts of first-degree murder died Monday in his prison cell.

William Davis was found alone and unresponsive in his cell at the Union Correctional Institution in Raiford on Monday afternoon, according to the Florida Department of Corrections.

The medical examiner will determine the cause of death, officials said.

“At this point, we cannot comment further on the particulars of the death,” an official said in a statement. “It is the protocol of the department to investigate the circumstances surrounding every inmate death.”

Officials said that in accordance with constitutional, federal and state law, the Department of Corrections provides inmates with access to appropriate levels of care to meet their clinical needs.

Davis was convicted of killing his girlfriend’s 16-year-old sister and the girls’ mother in 2003, when he was 20 years old.

The bodies of 47-year-old Alice Albin and 16-year-old Loretta Wren were found stabbed to death inside a Westside mobile home. Authorities say a 2-year-old child was alive found in the home with the bodies.”

Davis is only one of the many death row inmates who are dying at relatively young ages of natural causes on Florida’s death row. Most of these deaths, unlike Davis, are not reported. For example ,in September, a 41-year-old man named Russell Hudson died of a heart attack during the night, lying all night in his cell before he was found the following morning. His death was never reported other than on the blog of another death row inmate.

      I knew Loren (online) and we spoke almost daily for a few years before this happened. I think it shows how many peoples lives she touched that I still think of her and followed this as best I could through the news online for 11 years now. Robin, she cared immensely for you and your son A. I hope you’ve been able to carry on as best as one could be expected to.
