Edgar Steele is Dead
by Edgar Steele Defense Fund and Cyndi Steele
TODAY, September 4, 2014, early afternoon, a California mortuary notified Mrs. Cyndi Steele that her husband Edgar was dead. At this time, specific circumstances regarding Mr. Steele’s death are being confirmed. The Free Edgar Steele web site and the Edgar Steele Defense Fund (ESDF) will release more information when available.
Mrs. Steele contacted the ESDF Board, saying she was utterly devastated by this information, and is furious that no Victorville representative contacted her in the last few days regarding his failing health and did not even call her regarding the death of her husband. It was cruel to allow the mortuary to make the call.
Based on the best knowledge at hand, the following are the most likely causes of death: drug overdoses, persistently delayed, insufficient, improper medical treatment and medical neglect. The federal government and Victorville Penitentiary bears responsibility for the lives of the inmates who reside there and has refused to be accountable for the decline in Edgar Steele’s health.
Some hours before Mrs. Steele was contacted by the mortuary, ESDF President Robert Magnuson received an email corroborating Ms. Steele’s concern for her husband’s health and safety that showed Mr. Steele’s health has been in a sharp decline for the past month, which fact was obscured, if not hidden by the federal government.
First, Mr. Steele was the victim of a false prosecution, then he was imprisoned in the most dangerous prison health in America. Then his wife was never allowed to visit him despite a court order allowing visitation. Then, his health was compromised because of neglect, and finally, the reports came in that he had been drugged out of his mind earlier this week, which was the final blow that killed him. Call it anything else you like, but it is murder.
The facts of this tragic situation will be disclosed as the information is gathered.
Note by Cyndi Steele:
Following is the post I made today on my personal Facebook page and I share the below asking each of you to pay particular attention to the last statement in quotes:
I like how when you go to post on Facebook, the thing they ask is what is on your mind. I don’t think anyone really wants to know what is on my mind today, because it isn’t pretty and only the ones that know what my family and I have been through for the past four years will have an inkling of the heartbreak and devastation I have been hit with today.
My three children have lost their loving father and I have lost my husband, best friend and the love of my life. There is so much that is wrong with his death, but would take a novel to explain. What is sad is that even then there are people that won’t understand the heartbreak and devastation regarding my husband’s death; not only because of the fact that he has died, but for the reasons and circumstances that he had died and in the manner he died.
Anyway, that aside, I’m taking this time to say good bye Ed. I love you then, I love you now and I always will until the day I die and can be with you. Wherever you are, I can only pray that you know all this and can rest in peace.
For the reasons above, I leave you with this thought from an earlier post in hopes that you take it to heart and find a way to let everyone close and dear to your heart know how much you LOVE THEM.
“CHERISH EVERY MOMENT AND EVERY PERSON IN YOUR LIFE, BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN IT WILL BE THE LAST TIME YOU SEE SOMEONE.”
