Kastellio Vaughan was healthy according to his sister Kassie, who last saw him on July 24 when she visited him at Elmore Correctional Facility in Elmore County, Alabama. When she got two pictures of different version of who she saw three months ago, she became alarmed; the fact that the words, ‘GET HELP’ were inscribed under the image, furthered her fears.
 
Vaughan, who is 32, is currently serving 25 years for multiple charges of unlawful breaking and entering a vehicle and first-degree robbery.
 
Three weeks ago, local news affiliate 12 WSFA, who spoke with Vaughan’s family said that he’d complained about stomach pain.
 
“And no one was giving it to him and when they did it was like the bare minimum,” Kacie Vaughan said.
 
The family received a call from another inmate who let them know that their brother had went into surgery at the prison’s medical facility. Part of his intestines were removed, per the inmate.
 
In the image, which to date has been shared over 16,000 times, Vaughan can been seen with a large scar going down his abdomen. Kastellio’s ribs are showing, as he appears to be slumped with his eyes rolled to the back of his head. To show the considerable difference between how he once looked, Kassie posted an older image of her brother.
 
He’s lost 75 pounds according to his sister, who posted the picture to her Facebook.


 


 
Vaughan’s family has obtained the counsel of notable civil rights attorney Lee Merritt who released a statement in reference to representing the family:
 
“Earlier today Vaughan was transferred to Stanton Correction Facility in Montgomery, Alabama. Our attorneys are working to make direct contact with Mr. Vaughan along with recommendations for the necessary and appropriate medical care.”
 


Elmore Correctional Facility has been in the media over the last few months due to issues with those in authority. According to WAFF48, on Sept. 14, “a correctional officer for the Alabama Department of Corrections is on leave after an apparent fight between him and an inmate.”
 
In August, a separate situation involving Elmore Correctional Facility warden Jeffery Baldwin found him arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence. A spokesperson for the Alabama Department of Corrections, told news outlets that Baldwin was put on mandatory leave after the arrest, per the AP.

People reports that Vaughan has been touch with his family, according to a statement they obtained from the Alabama Department of Corrections. ADOC’s Office of Health Services has fully investigated his situation from a clinical perspective, and he has been offered all necessary treatment for his condition,” the department said.
