Two weeks before his scheduled release, an Alabama prisoner passed away from beatings, torture, and sexual assaults, according to his family.

Two weeks before he passed away in a hospital, Daniel Williams, a 22-year-old father of two infants, was discovered unconscious at Staton Correctional Facility on October 22. Williams was serving a one-year term for second-degree theft, as prison officials revealed to The Post on Monday.

The Alabama Department of Corrections stated that it was reported as a “possible inmate-on-inmate assault” two weeks before he passed away in a hospital.

But according to Williams’ family, they were not informed until October 25 that their loved one was brain dead in the hospital, and warden Joseph Headley put the blame on pharmaceuticals.

“I spoke to the warden myself, he said it’s obviously a drug overdose,” Williams’ stepmom, Taylor Bostic, told the Alabama Political Reporter.

She and Williams’ dad, Terry, “just assumed he got ahold of some bad drugs or something,” she said.

“And when we went to see him, he’s beaten and bruised up and you can tell where his hands were bound. I mean, you can tell it’s obviously not a drug overdose,” she said.

“And that’s when [dad Terry Williams] called the warden and asked him why the hell he told us that his son is dying from a drug overdose when it’s obviously assault,” his stepmom said.

“And all he could say after that was it’s under investigation.”

The publication added that they ultimately found out that he had been abducted, raped, or “tied up, beaten, and rented out for two to three days” by another prisoner. The sources claimed that this kind of brutality was not unusual in the prisons.

He “was beaten, tortured and sexually assaulted… by a gang of people with only 14 days until his release,” according to an online fundraiser.

The father of two passed away four days after life support was removed on November 5.

According to the story, Terry Williams and Bostic have hired a lawyer in an effort to hold someone accountable and stop similar attacks in the future.

Corrections officials confirmed that Williams was the victim of a “possible inmate-on-inmate assault” that left him “unresponsive” at Staton Correctional Facility.

“The decision was made to transfer him to an area hospital for further evaluation and treatment. He remained at the hospital until the family decided to remove him from life support,” Alabama’s DOC Public Information Manager Kelly Windham Betts said in a statement.

The department stated, “The ADOC Law Enforcement Services Division is investigating the incident,” although it did not specify whether charges had been brought.

The tragic tragedy happened at the same time that Alabama is being sued by the Department of Justice for neglecting to stop guards at state prisons from abusing their authority and abusing inmates.

The Alabama Appleseed Center for Justice and Law says that a federal trial is scheduled for the following year.
