Fulton County Inmate Stabbed to Death When Officer Left His Post for an Hour County Notified of Intent to Sue

Decatur, Georgia – The family of Dino Walker, an inmate in the Fulton County Jail, is devastated by the tragic loss of their loved one. On September 22, 2022, Mr. Walker was brutally stabbed to death when a detention officer abandoned his post on the floor for nearly an hour, leaving inmates unattended. This shocking incident underscores the serious concerns about the safety and security protocols within the Fulton County Jail currently being investigated by the Department of Justice.

According to reports, Detention Officer Curt Muhammad neglected his duties and left his post on 7 North for nearly an hour. In that period, two inmates allegedly conspired and carried out a vicious attack that resulted in the untimely death of Dino Walker. The report further reveals the distressing fact that, as Mr. Walker lay in a pool of his own blood, dying, while other inmates continued their daily activities. Based on a report of the video capturing the murder, the inmates appeared unaffected by the horrifying event, which further confirms the normalization of violence in the Fulton County Jail.

In response to the deliberate indifference by the jail administration for the well-being and safety of Dino Walker, and his death, the Davis Bozeman Johnson Law Firm has prepared a Presentation of Claims. This formal notification is addressed to the Fulton County Commissioners and Fulton County Sheriff, providing them with a 30-day window to address the situation appropriately before suit is filed.

“In March 2023, over 200 homemade knives were found during a search of only one third of the housing zones in the Fulton County Jail. By mid-March of this year there had been 78 stabbings in the Jail, more than one per day. At this pace, there will be 385 stabbings by year’s end. Being a pretrial detainee, not yet convicted of any offense, should not consign an inmate to death or severe injury by knifing. Lives, like Dino Walker’s, are at stake. Fulton County must do better!“- Attorney Harold W. Spence

To shed light on the circumstances surrounding this devastating incident and to discuss their legal action, the Davis Bozeman Johnson Law Firm will hold a press conference at 10 A.M. on Thursday, September 21st. The press conference will take place at their offices, located at 4153 Flat Shoals Parkway, Second Floor Conference Room, Decatur, Georgia 30034.

The family, and the legal team, will be accompanied by the Color of Change and Southern Center for Human Rights.
