Hate Crimes & Mysterious Deaths! Inside Bill Cosby's Prison Hell
Bill Cosby was taken to State Correctional Institution Phoenix in Montgomery County to begin his 3-10 year prison sentence for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004, and now RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal the hell the guilty comic will face as he rots behind bars.
RadarOnline.com can reveal a mysterious death occurred at the institution just weeks ago.
A man was found dead in his cell at SCI Phoenix. John Toland, 45, was found hanging in his cell at 6:20 a.m. on Sunday morning, Sept. 9, the Department of Corrections announced.
Toland was serving a 10 to 20 year sentence for burglary in Philadelphia.
Moreover, inmates of the institution, which has been deemed the most modern and expensive facility of Pennsylvania Department of Corrections since its $400 million revamp, reported a raft of complaints about the conditions in the new prison, including loss, vandalism, or destruction of their personal property.
Several claimed "hate crimes" occured as racial slurs were drawn on photographs of their loved ones.
According to a report, one inmate, Malik Gilmore, revealed copies of photographs he said were defaced by the specially trained Corrections Emergency Response Team, which managed the move — one with a swastika inked on his brother's forehead, another with a penis drawn over his son's mouth.
"We were dehumanized. Our property was … treated as trash," inmate Steven Reph wrote. "One elderly gentleman had his dentures taken or misplaced. How is this man supposed to eat now?"
Complaints from inmates also included limited access to water fountains and restrooms, minimum hot or cold water, and state's most-restrictive telephone policy, according to inmates.
As readers know, Tuesday evening, Cosby began serving his 3-10 year prison sentence for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004.
He was was immediately thrown in county jail without bail after his sentencing hearing.

Judge Steven O’Neill revoked his bail after delivering the shamed star’s fate Wednesday afternoon in Pennsylvania court.
“When a sentence in prison includes more than two years, the defendant shall not have the same right as bail before the verdict,” O’Neill said. “The bail should be at the discretion of the judge. This is a serious crime. This is a sexual assault crime. The nature of this crime indicates that he could quite possibly be a danger in the community.”
Cosby was ruled a “sexually violent predator” in court on Tuesday and he must register with the Pennsylvania State Police fro the rest of his lifetime.
He was also fined $25,000, persecution and court costs, and forbidden from contacting Constand or her family.
He was placed at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility before being transferred to SCI Phoenix for his classification.
Cosby will then likely spend the remaining of his sentence at Laurel Highlands.
