The father of a deceased inmate of the Pine Grove Correctional Centre in Prince Albert, Sask. says his daughter’s repeated requests for medical attention were ignored while she was alive.
The ongoing investigation by the coroner will determine if it is the case.
“I want answers and I will keep on until I get it,” Bill Faulkner said after his daughter Shauna Wolf died. She was on remand at the correctional centre when she died on Dec. 27, 2015.
The 27-year-old woman was found in distress in her cell and died while being transported by ambulance from the facility to hospital in the city, according to Drew Wilby, executive director with the Ministry of Corrections in Saskatchewan.
Wolf was alone in a cell at the prison.
