Inmates Fear 'Suicide Cell' at British Prison

sundaymercury - Hardened inmates at a Midland prison are terrified of entering a “possessed” cell after two near identical suicides in less than a year.

The lock-up at HMP Brinsford, near Wolverhampton, is being avoided by spooked lags after the deaths took place on the same day of the week – at the same time.

Now sources claim crooks are refusing to enter the ‘haunted’ cell and are demanding that priests are called in to perform an exorcism.

HMP Brinsford is a Young Offenders’ Institute housing almost 600 inmates aged between 15 and 21, including many awaiting trial for serious offences such as murder, rape and robbery.

The two suicides are said to have taken place in the same cell in 2009, although full details have not been made public.

But insiders claim a previous occupant was a devil worshipper – and that talk of the ‘demonic’ lock-up has now swept the jail.

“The deaths were on the same day and virtually at the same time,’’ a prison worker told the Sunday Mercury.

‘‘We have had a devil-worshipper in there and the chaplains are convinced that there’s something not right about the cell.

“They want it closed off completely. A lot of people are unhappy about it and the chaplains feel very strongly about it.

“There’s a lot of inmates who are very afraid, people don’t even want to walk past it anymore.

“It’s spooky... there’s definitely something strange going on in that cell.”

Another guard confirmed that prisoners had been raising fears about the cell since the second suicide in October.

“With two deaths so close together there has been talk on the corridors,” the warder said.

“Word gets around and everyone who has been here a year knows about the suicides in that cell.

“The cell is back in action again now as once the police and the coroner have finished their bit it comes into use again.

‘‘There is only so much room in prison and you can’t have one cell cordoned off.”

Prison chaplain Phil Seadon refused to answer any questions when quizzed by our reporter saying he could not “confirm or deny” plans for an exorcism.

A Prison Service spokesman said there was “no truth” in suggestions that an exorcism was planned.

But exorcisms have been carried out at public buildings before by priests, including at hospitals and schools.

One vicar who has worked for the Church of England’s highly secretive ‘Ministry of Exorcism’ for 40 years said that any ceremony at HMP Brinsford would be aimed at “blessing” the cell, to protect it in future.

“If the chaplains or local church are asked for help, they would certainly be able to give it,” the reverend said.

“The cell could be blessed if something like a suicide has taken place in there.

“Buildings and rooms can acquire a good or a bad atmosphere. If a building has a force of unrest of this kind, Christian ministers within the prison can hold a ceremony.

“The priest would go into the cell, say the appropriate prayers, bless the room and use holy water.

‘‘It’s something that we do quite regularly, although I don’t remember a case in a prison.

“But it’s nearly always a successful procedure.”
