A young man has succumbed to his injuries after being brutally assaulted by his fellow inmates of the prison, Rivière-des-Prairies, in Montreal, in the beginning of the week.

Sacha Shaquille Joseph, which would be linked to a street gang, was attacked Monday over the lunch hour by people who have not yet been formally identified.

He was taken to the intensive care unit of the Hospital of the Sacred Heart, where he died the next day.

The section of investigation of crimes against the person of the Sûreté du Québec now deals the event as a murder.

“He didn’t deserve that “, said the voice knotted, close to Jospeh, stressing that he was a quiet person and discreet.

Domestic Violence

The 25-year-old was in custody for a case of domestic violence that would have occurred on the 14th of June last.

Because of the COVID-19, he was placed in quarantine upon her arrival at the detention facility of Rivière-des-Prairies. This period of isolation ended on Monday.

Well, just placed with the rest of the prison population, Jospeh was seriously hurt during a fight, according to what he could be possible to learn.

He was to return to the court the day after his death to his inquiry on release.
