  1. They are not telling you the whole story if that’s all South Central Corrections stated. I’m Jeffery Bolden’s oldest daughter. They neglected my father, this could’ve been prevented!!!!!!!

  2. And I’d be happy to give the full back story of my dad’s death, even his case and the backstory with his charge of second degree murder. They charged him very harshly due the circumstances of the cause of death & was in process of appealing!! They completely neglected my father’s chest pain’s & difficulty breathing complaints for 11 months & the neglect didn’t stop there…

  3. I am very sorry for your loss and the frustration you feel surrounding the circumstances – Alesia Bolden. May your father rest in peace.
