Homeless man beaten to death in jail cellA 35-year-old homeless man, being held on charges of being drunk and disorderly, was found dead in his cell in a Louisiana jail, apparently beaten to death.
He was also stripped of all his clothing.
His three cellmates are being questioned in connection with what police are treating as a homicide.
Before his arrest, Brian G. Armstrong had been staying at the Lighthouse Mission, an Opelousas men's shelter.
Opelousas Police Chief Perry Gallow said all four men were suspected of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of their arrests and it is common for such prisoners to be housed in a group holding cell until they sober up.

What I want to know is: Where were the jail staffers while all this beating was going on?
