916. Crockett State School
Crockett State School was a youth prison that closed in 2011. Official reason was budget cuts.
Various sources speak of a death of a certain 17-year-old Demetrius Jeffries August 26, 1997. March 16, 2009 a 14-year old boy which was not identified in the media was found dead. Apparently he managed to hang himself using his underwear. At least that is the official reports as told in newspaper articles.
Other articles speak of relationships between detainees and the adult employees taking a nature which was a crime. Other reports speak of the use of restraint used as a weapon of fear.
Of course it was a prison and it was not a nice place to be as a teenager.
