    Lancaster was a black prisoner. There’s no way you would know whether he was an American citizen nor whether he came from Africa. He could have been Jamaican or from Europe. If you were writing this story about a jail in France, would you have referred to him as an African Frenchman? No. He was black.

    Nothing about Stanley Hoss that killed a Leutenant in the 70s and was defended by Edgar Snyder?

      Have you read my book, Born To Lose,
      which details the criminal career of Stanley Hoss, including the torture-murder of Lt. Walter Peterson while in
      the “hole” at Western Penitentiary on
      December 10, 1973? I think you would
      appreciate the story of this infamous case.

          Sure Steve, would be happy to talk,
          share information. Listed my email below
          But here’s my cell:
          (412) 680-4381.
          The Peterson murder was so very sad
          and so avoidable.

      Thanks for the heads up, Edward. We added what we found in our archives about Hoss and the dungeon.
