Curtis “Buff” Williams was not sentenced to death. Yet, the 34-year-old was shot and killed in the Oklahoma County Jail on Saturday evening, during a hostage situation in the facility.

In fact, Mr. Williams had not yet been tried for a crime when he died, after waiting for more than two years, according to his family. The extended Williams family noted that Mr. Williams’ mental health had been impacted by the isolation of jail, and he was not, as authorities initially claimed, a troublemaker.

While the details of the hostage takeover are still hazy, a jailer was attacked by a group of prisoners on the unit in which Mr. Williams was housed in the facility. Mr. Williams was shot and killed by two Oklahoma City police officers, both of whom are currently on paid administrative leave.
