The Georgia Department of Corrections has announced its investigating an inmate death in Augusta, GA – and it claims it is the fourth suicide in recent days and the fifth in about a month.

In fact, it is clear that violence, murder and alleged suicides are way out of control in Georgia prisons.

Just as in northern Michigan, inmates in Georgia area dropping like flies – accusations of brutality have long plagued prisons like Reidsville State Prison– and South Eastern Social Justice Breaking News has put together the resources to probe Augusta area prisons – as we have done in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

In Michigan, our sister news service has revealed state inmate death coverups and even caught the state lying about whether a riot was underway – but we force4d the state to admit the Kinross riot.

Scroll down to see what we have discovered so far in Georgia.

The death of an inmate at Augusta State Medical Prison is under investigation by state of Georgia corrections officials as it is the fourth time in just over a week that a state prison inmate has been found dead.

A guard found 39-year-old Montra Moss unresponsive at 12:30 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 6, 2017 side the Augusta facility.

He was pronounced dead at 1:08 a.m. Prison officials say they were unable to resuscitate/revive him.

Moss was sentenced to over 20 years in prison earlier this year for trafficking cocaine and possessing marijuana in Hall County in 2015.

This is the fourth death in Georgia prison in just over a week.

Two inmates apparently committed suicide on Oct. 29, one at Phillips State Prison in Buford and the other at Wilcox State Prison in Abbeville.

Another inmate died Oct. 31 at Hancock State Prison.

On March 15, 2008, the men gave 44-year-old Earl Eugene Gill $25 to purchase marijuana, but Gill was unable to obtain the drugs. Authorities say when he returned empty-handed, the men beat him then dumped him in Putnam County. Gill died 11 days later.

BRADSHAW v. THE STATE.

S16A1070

    Decided: October 31, 2016

Appellant Roy Lee Bradshaw was tried and convicted of malice murder and related offenses in connection with the March 2008 beating death of Earl Gill. Bradshaw appeals,1 alleging he received ineffective assistance of counsel and arguing that the trial court erred in admitting his custodial statements at trial. Finding no error, we affirm.

Viewed in the light most favorable to the jury’s verdict, the evidence adduced at trial establishes as follows. Earl Gill befriended Bradshaw, his wife Teresa, and the Morrises, Bradshaw’s co-defendants, while staying at an Econolodge in Milledgeville, Georgia. On March 15, 2008, Gill called his drug dealer, Michael Robbins, to arrange a drug buy for himself, Bradshaw, and the Morrises, funded by the group. Later that day, Gill drove with Robbins to a nearby Wal-Mart to complete the drug transaction. Upon their arrival at the store, Gill gave Robbins the group’s money. Robbins then entered the store under the pretense of completing the drug deal, but he never returned. After a fruitless search for Robbins, Gill walked back to the Econolodge and informed Bradshaw and the Morrises that Robbins had taken their money.

Believing that Gill was in on the theft, Bradshaw and the Morrises forced Gill into the back of Bradshaw’s van and, with Teresa in the driver’s seat,2 the group proceeded to ride around town in search of the stolen money. During the search, the men periodically struck Gill and, with each unsuccessful stop, they grew angrier and more convinced that Gill had stolen their money.

Eventually, Bradshaw had Teresa pull to the side of the road after which he and the Morrises dragged Gill from the vehicle and beat him for an extended period of time, finally leaving the victim for dead. Somehow, Gill managed to regain consciousness and stumble to a nearby home. When the owners saw Gill’s extensive injuries, they took him to the hospital where he died 9 days later from severe blunt force injuries to his head.

At trial, the jury heard many witnesses testify as to the numerous post-incident inculpatory statements made by Bradshaw, his wife, and the Morrises concerning their participation in Gill’s murder. Bradshaw also confessed to law enforcement that he and the Morrises beat the victim in the van and on the side of the road. Gill’s blood was found inside Bradshaw’s van, along with a bloody baseball bat and medium force velocity blood spatter, consistent with Gill being struck with a fist or bat.
