Former Prison Beating Victim Dies
(IDAHO FALLS) – An Idaho Falls man whose brutal beating launched a full-scale investigation into Idaho’s prison system has passed away. 26-year-old Hanni Elabed was paroled in 2010 after the incident, in which prison guards allegedly stood by while his assailant beat him for several minutes. Elabed suffered permanent brain damage as a result of the attack. Elabed died Wednesday at EIRMC, though it is unclear whether his death was related to his prison injuries.
