When the guards did open up D26 they shouted from outside “Come on then fat boy let’s get you out of here.’ The guard popped his head around the cell door then saw all the blood.

“Watson out! They shouted as prisoner 85293 sat up and asked what was going on.’

The alarm was pressed and screws on duty banged every prisoner on D Wing up again.’

“Get the fuck out of that bed Watson before I kick your fucking brains in.’

Watson climbed down from his bunk and stood outside the cell

  They found Reynolds body slumped on the floor; he was dead.

Watson was led away by another screw to an isolation wing until an investigation was carried out.

Colin Sarin was informed immediately; who then had to inform the home office of what had happened.

The forensic team came in taking photographs of the scene and the blade was lifted from the floor of the cell as evidence.

The body of Albert Reynolds was taken to the morgue and then his parents were informed.

“Colin Sarin was furious; “This was no suicide; this has got to be Watson who has done this. “ I want you to question him down on the isolation wing. “I don’t care how you do it but get me some answers.’

Two hours after the body of Albert Reynolds was discovered; the prisoners were allowed out of their cells. Word quickly spread around the prison and Butch and Danny soon found out.’

They too were angry that Albert was dead. They knew Albert wasn’t suicidal so all points led to Derek Watson as the killer. “Albert would not top himself on the morning he was being released; it just didn’t add up.


Derek Watson the tall black man with a Rastafarian hairstyle sat on the chair as two screws came in.’

“Right Watson fucking own up; you killed Albert Reynolds didn’t you?’ Now we know who ordered it and why so don’t try and play the smart one with us.

“I don’t know what you are talking about; I know nothing about this. I was woken up by the guards this morning, that’s the first I knew about Reynolds topping himself.’

“He didn’t top himself and you know it. Now come on tell us the bloody truth.’

“I don’t know anything’.

One of the guards punched Watson in the face and he went flying backwards off the stool.’

“I’m fucking telling you boss, I do know nothing said Watson as he lay in a heap on the floor wiping blood from his nose which was now broken. He was wearing clean pyjamas . He’d made sure that he was completely naked when he carried out the attack and he washed himself with a wet flannel then tossed it out of the cell window.

One of the guards stood on his bare foot and Watson cried out.’

“You will tell us eventually Watson so you’d better make it easy on yourself now by spilling your guts.’

“I told you. I know nothing boss.’
