A Terre Haute, Indiana inmate was killed within the first few hours after his arrival to the country’s most secured federal prison, the second prisoner to get murdered there in less than two weeks.
47-year-old Stephane Dwayne Cannada was stabbed to death by a fellow inmate at around 9:30 p.m.
Friday, hours after he landed at the USP Terre Haute to serve an eight-year sentence for meth possession.
About a week earlier, inmate Michael Rudkin was beaten to death during a violent altercation with another prisoner at the same jail.
The Terre Haute prison where more than 1,100 male detainees are serving time deals with unprecedented understaffing, violence, and bad management.
Officials notified the FBI about the incidents as the standard protocol requires for murders committed behind federal prisons’ walls.
