An Alabama woman is pleading for help for her brother after she received photos of his health deteriorating in state prison.
Kassie Vaughan took to Facebook about her brother, Kastellio Vaughan’s health condition.
“MY BROTHER KASTELLIO VAUGHAN He’s currently an inmate placed at Elmore Correctional Facility. I’m coming to you right now based on my brother’s health. My brother’s health is rapidly declining. As you can see in these photos he is extremely malnourished. In these particular photos he cannot walk nor stand he is weak and vulnerable. My last visitation with my brother was July 24, 2022 he was in good condition. I am not a doctor but his health seems to be deteriorating. I received 2 pictures of him today saying “GET HELP”. I’m asking for you to simply share and get these pictures out this is violating human rights. I don’t see how you cannot get help when a individual is in this state. Tag all news stations please and anybody that can help with this issue. This is urgent and I’m concerned and scared for my brother’s health.”
The Facebook post included very graphic photos of Kastellio health and in one photo his eyes appeared to be rolled back into his head.
Kastellio is serving a 20 year sentence at Elmore Correctional Facility in central Alabama for mulitple convictions of burgalary that includes an unlawful breaking and entering into a vehicle. He was up for parole in June of this year but was denied and he won’t be eligible for parole again until 2027.
“The Alabama Department of Corrections understands there is concern about the welfare of inmate Kastello Demarcus Vaughan,” the ADOC wrote in an email to AL.com.
“He is assigned to Elmore Correctional Facility (CF) but is currently housed at Staton Medical Observation Unit. ADOC’s Office of Health Services has fully investigated his situation from a clinical perspective, and he has been offered all necessary treatment for his condition. Also, he has been in touch with his family to update them on his situation.”
