Source: CEO of Private Prison Corporation to Visit Delaware County Following Mass-Overdose

The heads of a mega-for-profit private prison corporation will be journeying to Delaware County to visit George W. Hill Correctional Facility following a mass-overdose on Christmas, multiple well-placed sources told yc.news Friday — and according to a well-placed source, the CEO of The GEO Group will make a rare appearance.

69-year-old George Christopher Zoley – who owns the mega-corporation that purchased the prison, is expected to personally visit the grounds as soon as next week.

We previously reported that at-least eight inmates were hospitalized during the Christmas holiday after suffering from apparent fentanyl overdoses. One female remained in critical condition as of Thursday.

“Several correctional officers experienced random drug tests that started yesterday,” a source close to the silent situation revealed to yc.news. “The heads of GEO will be converging on the prison after the new year. Guards are worried.”

“George Hill has a serious problem on their hands.”

Following an explosive expose on the scandal ridden prison that surfaced on yc.news, prison executives have been scrambling to resolve the issue before incoming Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer takes office.

“They’re mortified of the new administration; they know that Jack guy means business and he has the calvary from the Pennsylvania Attorney Generals Office behind him, given they’re gunning for prison reform, too.”

Jack Stollsteimer, the first Democrat ever elected district attorney in Delaware County’s history, will be sworn in Jan. 6, 2020.

“George Hill has a very serious issue on their hands since this is the last private prison standing in Pennsylvania.”

George W. Hill Correctional Facility is owned by The GEO Group, Inc., a Florida-based company specializing in privatized corrections, detention, and mental health treatment.

According to their portfolio, the company maintains facilities in North America, Australia, South Africa, and the United Kingdom.

Zoley, a Greek-born American businessman, is the chairman, chief executive officer, and founder of the GEO Group, which manages prisons and jails in the US and internationally.

“George isn’t someone who visits the prison grounds unless there’s a ribbon cutting or something,” a second person stuck in the sticky situation revealed. “George is a powerful man — he won’t let some locals turn his prison into a circus slumber party.”

“From what I know, he wants to work with the new administration on what he can do make mends for the slop left behind from the local Republican patriarch — John Reilly, Jr.”

Reilly, a staunch Republican, stepped down in Nov. 2019 following a bombshell investigation released by The Philadelphia Inquirer, outlining a pattern of racism swept under the carpet behind the fortified prison walls.

“If that means wiping out the entire staff in one swoop then so be it, I believe George would do that in a heartbeat. Once he sees firsthand what’s going on behind those walls, we’ll see a major shakeup.”

According to an inmate’s family, who stated officials are trying to crack down on leaks to members of the media, claims though dozens of guards were on duty, the actions of merely one saved the situation from turning into a deadly Christmas catastrophe.

“There were dozens of guards on duty nearby and only one found her way to the unit. One. Out of dozens,” the source told yc.news.

“Meanwhile, there were five women lying on the ground, lifeless, with nothing to do but wait. Wait to live. Wait to die. At George W. Hill, they were waiting for an absolution that would never come.”

The tone for incoming district attorney Stollsteimer’s first few months in office is set before even crossing the courthouse threshold.

“Stollsteimer is upsetting the apple cart, taking on the establishment and a lot of people are angry and have a lot to lose. You’re seeing that play out in rolling resignations,” an insider at the Delaware County Public Defender’s Office preciously told us. “The outgoing administration littered the district attorney’s office with conservative ideologues, saboteurs and spies.”

“Yes, changing the stagnant, backstabbing swamp of Delaware County is like turning the Titanic around on a dime. But this is the first step – a housecleaning of epic proportions!”
