19 inmates have died inside Macomb County’s jail since 2012, with the most recent death—the suicide of 51-year-old Alfred Paige—happening just this month.
“Multiple people are dying, and probably unnecessarily,” said Dan Korobkin, deputy legal director of the ACLU of Michigan. “We owe a duty to all people in the world and all people in society to treat them humanely.”
The causes of death range from heart attacks to sepsis, drug overdoses to suicides. Some of the inmates battled mental illness or addiction.
