    DOJ report cites ‘operational and managerial deficiencies’ in 344 inmate deaths – By Ehren Wynder (UPI) / Feb 15, 2024

    Feb. 15 (UPI) — Recent high-profile inmate deaths, such as the homicide of James “Whitey” Bulger in 2018 and the suicide of Jeffrey Epstein in 2019, have raised concerns about operational deficiencies in federal prisons, the U.S. inspector general said Thursday.

    The Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General released a report Thursday, which detailed issues surrounding inmate deaths in Federal Bureau of Prisons institutions.

    The OIG evaluated 344 inmate deaths in federal prisons over an eight year period in four categories: suicide, homicide, accident and “unknown factors.”

    More than half of the recorded deaths were suicides, with homicides being the second-most prevalent.
