The Nashville Scene this week profiled the story of Madison Bailee Deal, a 26-year-old who died last year at Silverdale Detention Facility in Chattanooga after being jailed for a probation violation. While imprisoned, she complained of experiencing dehydration and respiratory problems and died two days later. Deal’s parents filed a federal wrongful-death lawsuit against CoreCivic, which operates the facility, alleging their daughter was denied reasonable medical treatment for serious medical conditions. Correct Care Solutions, Hamilton County and several staffers are also named as defendants.
