A 22-year-old prisoner was driven to commit suicide after being brutally beaten by prison officers at a facility in New York, according to a lawsuit filed by the man’s family.

As a result of his death, a judge introduced an order to reduce the Goode murder case.

According to the court case, the 22-year-old has ‘checked the boxes for many chronic risk factors for suicide’.

As an adult, Taylor repeatedly shared his experience of being physically and sexually abused as a child. He claimed that his mother’s former boyfriend was responsible for the abuse. The suit says that around 2009 Taylor tried to hang himself in his grandmother’s house.

Taylor was admitted to hospital and spent some of his teenage years in a young people’s hospital before he went to high school and joined the Marines in 2013.

While enrolled in the United States Marine Corps, Taylor allegedly attempted suicide by hanging up in April 2014. As a result, he was fired from the Marines for medical reasons.

He was arrested just three months later for the murder of Goode. And just a few weeks before his July 2016 sentence, Taylor married his childhood friend Janine Conroy.

Taylor was evaluated during his inclusion in the DOCCS (New York State Department of Correction and Community Supervision) and it was determined that his suicide warning signs or triggers are his current detention, suicide attempts, length of imprisonment, seriousness of crime, substance abuse and medical problems . ”

He was subsequently diagnosed “on axis 1: unspecified anxiety disorder, unspecified depressive disorder,” with moderate alcohol and cannabis use as well. Doctors have designated Taylor as mental health level 3 and have determined that he “has no serious mental illness (SMI).”

Taylor was repeatedly denied proper medical attention after repeatedly expressing suicidal ideas, the court said. He was placed in solitary confinement for the use of synthetic marijuana

Taylor was prescribed Celexa and Vistaril – an antidepressant and sedative – and was transferred to Wende, where he repeatedly said he wanted to commit suicide. During an evaluation, Taylor reportedly said, “I can’t handle this, I’ve lost everything.”

During the assessment, Taylor noted that he had been harassed by an officer who stated that he was a “snitch.” He tried to ask for protective custody, but was reportedly threatened by the officer and failed to grant the request.

Taylor was put in the suicide guard for a day, but his mental health level was not changed to reflect the nature of his suicidal tendencies. The former Marine received an intense medical plan and had to attend regular therapy sessions, but doctors asked ‘no’ when asked about serious persistent mental illness.

At the start of the new year in 2017, Taylor sought help after hearing that his wife was reportedly seeing another man. The couple filed for divorce just two weeks later.

The suit states that the medical professionals were aware of the events that succeeded the suit, but failed to control Taylor. A nurse noted that Taylor was in severe pain and unable to chew food because of the swelling on his face

Taylor reportedly abused synthetic marijuana (K2), molly and other substances while in Wende. He had to be transferred to the Erie County Medical Center after experiencing the effects of the medication on June 22, 2017.

DOCCS has disciplined Taylor for substance abuse and sentenced him to 120 days in solitary confinement called “Keeplock.”

“Keeplock has been recognized as a tortuous experience that” can exacerbate existing mental illnesses and create new mental health problems for everyone, “the trial says.

It also claims that Taylor communicated with his mother that many correction staff were abusing his rights and, among other things, depriving him of the use of showers. Darlene McDay reportedly asked for an investigation for the death of her son, but was never informed of what was going on, the suit says

Taylor remained isolated for four roughly four months, which, according to the suit, contributed to his deteriorating mental state. He lost his visiting, telephone and package rights during that time. Taylor was finally released from Keeplock in September.

The suit shares that Taylor attempted suicide using a sheet in July 2017. It also states that health professionals have contacted Darlene McDay and are concerned about Taylor’s mental health condition. The two parties said that Taylor’s grandfather was not doing well with his health.

Although these events took place, doctors failed to appoint Taylor to another category of mental health.

On October 5, two days before Taylor committed suicide, the prisoner reportedly had a negative reaction to K2 and was taken to the infirmary. It was then that medical staff learned that Taylor’s grandfather had died.

A doctor noted that Taylor’s vague suicidal ideas and some symptoms of psychosis seemed to have it. But medical staff could not really recognize Taylor’s mental history and move him from facility to facility, the suit says.

Taylor was fired to his cell on the morning of October 6, where he would later be beaten while he had an attack related to the use of K2 drugs.

The family is looking for an unspecified amount in damages for medical errors, excessive violence and Taylor's unlawful death

The suit says that men in the adjacent cells could hear Taylor scream while “the sound of sticks” touched his body. Taylor was allegedly beaten unconscious.

When at the Wende infirmary, doctors determined that Taylor suffered multiple blunt force injuries to his head, neck, trunk and extremities. The suit claims that the defendants tried to hide the attack by suggesting that Taylor hit his head against his cell wall.

The lawsuit states that the medical professionals were aware of the events that succeeded in the suit, but did not keep Taylor under surveillance. A nurse noted that Taylor was in severe pain and unable to chew food because of the swelling on his face. The same nurse refused Taylor access to his emergency contact in the hours prior to his death, and noted that he had “thanked” her for “helping” him.

It also claims that Taylor communicated with his mother that many correction staff were abusing his rights and, among other things, depriving him of the use of showers. Darlene McDay reportedly asked for an investigation for her son’s death, but was never informed of what was going on, says the suit.

The lawsuit claims that “all the defendants should have been particularly vigilant in Mr. Taylor, given the prevalence of suicide in prisons in New York in general and specifically in Wende. It says that 50 New York state prisoners would have committed suicide until 2018 over a five-year period.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants were “deliberately indifferent to Mr. Taylor’s serious medical condition,” repeatedly failing to “act on information indicating that Mr. Taylor was in great danger.”

The family is looking for an unspecified amount of compensation for medical malpractice, excessive violence and unlawful death.
