Menard prison murder: State to review policies in light of tragedy

Joshua Daczewitz, formerly of Arlington Heights, was a first-time inmate when he tested positive for cocaine and was transferred as punishment from a minimum-security prison to maximum-security Menard. A short time later, prison employees cleared Daczewitz to be placed in a cell with Corey Fox, who was serving a life sentence for murder and had repeatedly attacked cellmates and voiced the urge to kill again.

Two months later, in February 2004, Fox strangled Daczewitz, 22.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

anyone care to investigate how Daczewitz GOT cocaine while in a minimum security prison?
