Family of Alaska prisoner, who died in segregation, receives payout from the state
The family of a man who died in an Alaska prison in 2014 will receive more than $500,000 from the State of Alaska, according to a report from Division of Risk Management.
Davon Mosley, 20, was admitted to the Anchorage Correctional Complex in March 2014 for a parole violation in California. A state review discovered he spent more than a week in segregation for attempting to fight a correctional officer. He was left naked with nothing but a suicide blanket.
Mosley was found dead in his cell April 4, 2014.
Last August, Gov. Bill Walker ordered an administrative review of the DOC, which included investigations into several inmate deaths.
Mosley’s family will receive $625,000 from the Department of Law, according to DOC spokesperson Corey Allen-Young.
