Five Arrested in the Death of a Midland County Jail Inmate


MIDLAND, TX – Five suspects have been indicted by a Midland County grand jury in connection with the death of an inmate in the Midland County Jail.

According to court documents, Texas Rangers were called in to investigate the death of Savion Hall who passed away July 19, 2019 at a Lubbock Hospital while in the custody of the Midland County Central Detention Center. Subsequently, employees of the Midland County Sheriff’s Department began investigating the circumstances of his death.

 The investigation was then turned over to the Texas Rangers. After a lengthy investigation, the case was presented to the Midland County District Attorney’s Office.

As a result of restrictions due to COVID-19, the State could not present the case to a Grand Jury until this summer.

On July 15, 2020, a Midland County Grand Jury returned indictments on 41-year-old Adeola Adesomi of Midland,  Flor Estrada, 30, of Odessa, 28-yeay-old Timothy Forbush of Odessa, Lilian Okeri 27, of Big Spring, TX, and Kelly Robins, 52, of Odessa. 

They were indicted on charges including alleging Manslaughter, Criminally Negligent Homicide and Tampering with a Government Record based on the investigation.

None of the individuals indicted were employees of Midland County.

It's a disgraceful shame that San Angelo Live gets off on reporting out of town news that nobody cares about, yet we, right here in sleepy little old San Angelo, had a local teenager shot and murdered yesterday and there's not a single word mentioned because the SA Live tard's are too busy trying to find something to write about that happened 400 miles from here..........

really suck to be you. Constantly worrying over free news that you have every opportunity to ignore. BTW, Midland is only 112 mi.
Why worry?
There are only two things to worry about.
Either you are well or you are sick.
If you are well, then there is nothing to worry about.
But if you are sick, there are two things to worry about.
Either you will get well, or you will die.
If you get well, there is nothing to worry about.
But if you die, there are two things to worry about.
Either you will go to Heaven or Hell.
If you go to Heaven, there is nothing to worry about.
But if you go to Hell, you'll be so damn busy shaking hands with friends, you won't have time to worry.
