    I have done time in the hole there at Algoa, so I know what he’s talking about.
    It IS pretty bad.
    My name is Heath Wilkins. I was incarcerated within the MoDOC for almost
    40 years flat, from 1985 to 2022. I was 16 years old when first incarcerated and
    I spent my first 15 years on Missouri’s Death Row.
    I am now out and trying to figure out how to make my way,… through life?
    I don’t know.
    But yeah,… it is pretty bad at Algoa.
