A family is speaking out after they say their relative was neglected at the State Prison in Albion.
Paula Thomas is outraged after her 48 year old brother Dennis Austin died on January 1st at the Albion Prison.
WARNING: The pictures in the video are extremely graphic.
They were given to us by the family.
Dennis Austin was diagnosed with lung and bone cancer July 8th.
His sister says it was all downhill after that.
The images show the numerous bedsores Austin acquired when he was in the infirmary.
Thomas says that when she visited her brother she couldn't see the bedsores because he was always covered under a sheet.
Thomas asked the funeral director to take pictures so she could document what she claims is neglect.
We've learned the pictures were reviewed by Erie County Forensic Pathologist Dr. Eric Vey of the Coroner's Office.
He said, "The care was not only adequate but probably as good as one would find in a regular hospital and that the photographs indicated decubiti that would be expected in a long term bedridden situation."
Thomas wants to continue to fight for her brother and for others she says may be in the same situation.
She says they are looking into hiring an attorney to see if they have a case.
