John Horton

John Horton died at the age of 22, while in a solitary confinement cell in Los Angeles' Men's Central Jail. There were conflicting autopsy reports, but ultimately John's mother, Helen Jones, was able to learn about the extensive trauma John suffered leading up to his death. LA county originally listed John's death as suicide, but the Jones family believes this was staged to help move attention away from the potential that John was killed by a Los Angeles Sherriff Department gang known as the 3000 Boys.
