In Memory of Robert Sliney
Riposa in pace, mio fratello

4-10-17, 1 PM

On 4-4-17, I learned my brother died on 4-6. The prison locked in the Hole for four days, naked, cold, no bed to sleep on. They put me on suicide watch.

I was just told that my brother, Robert Sliney, is not my brother. Though we have the same father, we do not have the same mom so we are not brothers. They locked me up for lying. They locked me up for lying. Bobby's mom, a wonderful woman named Mary, is also gone.

I am in the Hole, asking anyone reading this to go find the GoFundMe site on my brother and please help his little sister Meagan pay for his burial. Bobby was not a bad man, and he died way too young. Please give whatever you can to help. I cannot call them, and I don't know an address to write to, but I will find you and I will be in touch. Can't do it until they let me out of the Hole. I will be in touch in may, I promise.

Bobby's last name was Costanzo, but his mom changed it to her name. It's why it took me so long to find him. Please help bury my little brother. He is not me. He deserves a decent burial.

Thank you and God bless. Ciao.

Thank you so much. This means a lot to us. I'm sorry but we had a viewing and a cremation right after. It was really nice. He was so young but never forgotten. Stay safe and out of the hole. Take care.

Rob, I just got your last letter from Melanie. I had just mailed a letter to you earlier in the day. I will go ahead with promoting the blog! Glad you like what's been done so far.

I'm sorry to hear what you're going through. I look forward to discussing on email when you're out of the hole. I'm glad Sr. Mary was there for you and you got the sign you needed. So very glad!

You gave a lot of good advice on the situation with T's dentures. I have been on the MDOC website, it is not super clear cut. It does say you must wait 2 years after coming into prison for dental work. I guess that's to prevent people who are in for a short time from getting all their dental work done for free. That Humanity for Prisoners org I told you about is helping us go through the steps to hopefully get something done. They said she needed to file a grievance, which she has done, and then keep appealing it. I guess it's a 3 step process. Once they deny her for the 3rd time, H for P can contact the ombudsman in Lansing on her behalf; that's usually when things get done.

She has met with her appeal lawyer and it sounds like he is pursuing some appropriate avenues. I get what you mean about them not doing their job but this one seems OK. Once she is on grounds she can go to the law library. 3 more months. Crazy, huh? I am gearing up for another visit with her in about 3 weeks. I just wrote her today to let her know what day I'm coming.

Gotta run, just wanted to reply to some of the things you said in your letter. Hang in there!!

j.c.

Hey melanie, not sure if he will still be in the hole when I send his letter but I want to send a picture to him. Can he have it or will they throw it out?

Hi Kelly, I spoke to him yesterday and he was put back in general population. He can have pictures! I think they only deny pics that are deemed inappropriate or have stickers or tape on them.

Ok awesome I would love to send a picture of his brother to him. I know that would make it a little better for him since his passing.
