Woman Dies Working DOC Fields

By PETER STRESCINO
THE PUEBLO CHIEFTAIN
A La Vista corrections facility inmate died last week after collapsing while working in a farm field on South Road.

Bonnie Neal, 43, died at Parkview Medical Center on Thursday, according to Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer.

Kramer said she died after suffering a pulmonary embolism while she was picking watermelons. She had only been an inmate at La Vista for a couple of days.

The coroner did not have Neal's hometown. Calls to the Colorado Department of Corrections were not returned and a staffer at Parkview said the only information they had on Neal listed her being from the prison facility.

Neal was part of a program that allows prisoners to work in the fields of local farmers.

DOC pays 60 cents a day, to cover hygiene that the state refuses to provide. This is truly a sad day, but no one in Denver will ever hear about it.

Yes it is a sad day, its a real shame that slavery exists in Colorado in spite of so called constitutional guarentee's. I hope the legislature will look real deep into Colorado corrections practices, and Zavares being able to write AR's on any and every subject there is?? I wonder if he has one on how to die in prison?? djw
