Haiti Government Blames Les Cayes Massacre on Gang Leader
A brutal mass slaughter occurred at LesCayes prison not long after Haiti's 2010 earthquake shook the island.
Accounts vary about who was to blame. The government asserts a prison gang leader murdered a dozen inmates before he ran to freedom.
Investigative journalists report Haitian National Police massacred inmates rioting because they had been beaten and crammed into cells. The reason for the beatings was the hysteria the confined men felt during the earthquake. Police shot some victims at point blank.
