What led us to break this news about a prison murder? Last week we started to notice hits from Google from folks using the search term, “stabbing at Lieber”. We searched the news sites and Google and found no reference to a recent stabbing there. This evening we received an anonymous tip from someone claiming to be the family member of an inmate there. We were told that an inmate by the name of Christopher Gale was stabbed on 3 March, 2014 and has since died as a result of his injury.
Gale’s record has already been removed from the SCDC database. We will give you more information as we get it.
