Wallace had been incarcerated on robbery charges.

    I’m sure some form of government had something to do with this murder. Many people are killed within institutions if they are not well liked by family, public, or government. They ‘claim’ it was another inmate, yet they NEVER file charges or anything for them. A family member of my husband’s was murdered by the correctional officer’s while she was incarcerated. Family members substantiated this and did not go after the cops. THEY ARE ALL PUNKS!!!!
