Convicted North Dakota Killer’s Cause Of Death Revealed
Chad Isaak died July 31st in a Bismarck, North Dakota hospital.
An internal investigation is underway to see if proper procedures were followed when conducting required checks of prisoners. On July 31st Chad Isaak was found hanging in his jail cell. He was not pronounced dead until reaching a Bismarck hospital. Information is now being reported by the Associated Press that one of the guards at the North Dakota State Penitentiary was not following proper protocol at the time Isaak was found hanging in his cell.
No charges against the officer are expected.
The investigation is centered around cardboard that Isaak had used to block his cell window. Inmates are not allowed to cover their windows.
Sgt. Deandre Adams has been placed on administrative leave until an internal investigation at the prison is completed, prison spokeswoman Kayli Richards said Wednesday.
Because of the cardboard window cover, Adams reportedly was unable to properly check on Chad Isaak at 4:53 PM and again at 5:28 PM. This gap in time certainly opens the way for speculation on whether Isaak's life could have been saved if he had been discovered earlier
Isaak was serving four life sentences without the possibility of parole for the April 2019 killings of RJR Maintenance and Management co-owner Robert Fakler, 52; and employees Adam Fuehrer, 42; Bill Cobb, 50; and Lois Cobb, 45. The Cobbs were married.
No motive was given at the trial or established by authorities.
The lack of a clear motive has left many still wondering what actually happened in April of 2019. Isaak's suicide still leaves so many questions unanswered.
