An 18-year-old woman who was imprisoned in a notorious prison in Colombia claimed that she was “raped, stabbed, hanged from staircases, and witnessed suicides” while there.
In April 2017, the infamous “Cocaine Cassie” Cassandra Sainsbury was detained. According to reports, a man who pretended to be a translator set up her purchase of headphones at a discount that contained cocaine.
The then-22-year-old spent three years in Colombia’s El Buen Pastor prison. The young Australian woman was detained alongside drug traffickers, murderers, and other criminals in the dungeon jail.
She described her time there as a “living hell”, and recalls witnessing inmates hanging themselves from staircases and stabbed.
