In the part of the UK known as the Midlands, 127 prison inmates have died since 2006.
Gartree, a prison in the UK, has had a lot of prisoner 'suicides'. (Murder behind bars and other inmate deaths at jail ...)
On 26 August 2010, we read that a UK prison officer, who was off work, allegedly wrote a message in his own blood.
In the UK, John Healy, a senior prison officer at Gartree prison , allegedly wrote a message in his own blood before his body was discovered in a lake.
Healy was found with cuts to his wrists, arms and legs in a lake in June 2008 – just five days before he was due to return to work.
On 24 August 2010, at Leicester Town Hall, an inquest was told that three deaths in prison during 2006 and 2007 had upset Healy.
The inquest heard that on the evening of his death, the bloody message – which included the words "Dep Gov Cow" – was discovered at the property he was renovating.
The writing was believed to be referring to former Gartree deputy governor Miss Sharon Williams.
She said she had no reason to think Mr Healy had a problem with her.
Deputy coroner Donald Coutts-Wood said he could not record a suicide verdict.
This was because it has not been established how Mr Healy's body came to be in the lake.
Mr Coutts-Wood criticised Leicestershire Police for losing Mr Healy's mobile phone. (Gartree prison officer 'wrote messages in blood' )
Mrs Healy said her husband had generally seemed 'positive' over the prospect of returning to work. He had never displayed any suicidal tendencies, she told the inquest. (Prison officer had history of problems with governor, inquest hears )
Brad Lane with Reggie Kray at Gartree prison. (Yorkshire Post)
Reggie Kray was a UK gangster and he was sexually attracted to boys.
In 1969, he was jailed for murder.
Reggie Kray's prison file, seen by the Daily Mail, shows he spent hours talking to young offenders and writing to schoolchildren (The Goodfather: How Reggie Kray spent his later years )
In 1997, it was reported that: 'He can frequently be observed engrossed in deep conversation with young inmates...'
A 1977 report on his progress said: 'Ronald Kray remains an active and predatory homosexual, and cares little who knows it.'
Another report describes how Kray was found in bed with another inmate.
Reportedly, prison officers usually turned a blind eye to Kray's affairs.
Reggie Kray's twin brother was Ronnie Kray, who was also a gangster and lover of boys.
Gangster Ronnie Kray and top politician Lord Boothby in 1963. Lord Boothby was close to all the top people from Churchill to Tom Driberg. Reportedly, Ronnie once said to a boy: "You will go home with Lord Boothby. You will do exactly what Lord Boothby wants. Or I will hurt you" (De Personen Encyclopedie)
The Kray twins, Ronnie and Reggie, were mafia-style British gangsters.
They had intimate connections to top people in the political world.
They were gay.
They were friends with a young boy called Brad Lane who has since died.

According to this source - Archives - the Krays had links to a paedophile ring.
"What was involved was the systematic abuse of ten-to-twelve-year-old boys, one of whom subsequentlybecame fairly well known as a singer.
"Another, rather less fortunate,wound up in six pieces in two suitcases...
"The paedophile ring in question had links to the Kray twins."
More information is found here -Archives
"The police uncovered a large-scale juvenile pimping operation centred on a house in a Suffolk village (Tattington) owned by Ronnie Kray.
(the twins had huge property interests in EastAnglia).
"Some of the boys were obtained via a close friend of Britten's in London, who named him as one of the beneficiaries of the 'service': other'customers' included Lord Boothby (who frequently shared boys with Ronnie Kray himself) and the record producer Joe Meek.
"At least two other people died in the aftermath of Bernard's murder as the twins sealed up the leaks."
Brad Lane with Buster Edwards (Mail on Sunday...)
In April 2009, The Mail on Sunday and the Yorkshire post told us about Brad Lane.

1. Reggie Kray became friends with a boy called Brad Lane.
Reggie came to call Brad his 'adopted son'.
2. Almost every day, Brad wrote letters to Reggie while Reggie was a prisoner at Gartree Prison in Leicestershire.
3. This happened after Brad's father had left home.
4. Brad became Reggie Kray's most frequent visitor.
5. When Reggie was transferred to Lewes prison, in East Sussex, Brad travelled the 600 miles from his home in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, to see him.
6. In 1991, Brad - then aged 12 - changed his name to Kray.
The 57-year-old Kray signed a legal document declaring Brad to be his adopted son.
7. Brad also visited Ronnie Kray, a paranoid schizophrenic, in Broadmoor mental hospital.
In 1997, the Independent reported (paedophiles in prison who recruit ...):
Juveniles as young as 15, who are being held in adult jails, may be being recruited into child-sex rings.
"Two boys who were being held on remand at Doncaster prison were allowed into contact with a convicted paedophile called Belcher.
"Since being moved to Wetherby prison, in West Yorkshire, the boys have been receiving letters from Belcher and have been sent money last month by another man described as 'a colleague of the paedophile'."
The Chief Inspector of Prisons, General Sir David Ramsbotham, "has told friends he was recently horrified to discover that a juvenile offender, who had been the victim of a paedophile, was being held in the same unit of Cardiff prison as the man who abused him.
Stephen Shaw, director of the Prison Reform Trust, said: "There is a danger that we will begin to see in prisons a mirror image of the corruption and abuse that has been found in care homes."
In March 2008, the BBC Programme 'Panorama' told us more about Jersey: the UK Island of Secrets
According to the BBC programme:
A key abuser - reported by the police to be dead - is alive and living in France.
Jersey's Haute de la Garenne children's home (where children were reported to have been tortured and murdered) was closed in 1986.
The children were transferred to other children's homes.
One such home was Blanche Pierre run by Jane and Alan Maguire.
Panorama spoke to seven former residents of the home.
They all describe abuse, including torture.
Panorama tracked Alan Maguire down to a village in France.
One might wonder if people like Alan Maguire are being protected by some very powerful people?
