Allegations Jail Nurse Performed Exorcism on Dying Inmate

Oklahoma County Jail Nurse Linda Herlong Jackson, an employee of Armor Correctional Health Services, faces allegations she attempted to perform on exorcism on a thrashing inmate in need of medical care. The inmate died the next day due to a methamphetamine induced heart event.

The death occurred in February of 2017, and the nurse was suspended from duties pending a full investigation. The allegations have now been turned over to the Oklahoma County District Attorney’s office to determine if charges are to be filed.

Nurse Jackson denies allegations that she asked if anyone minded if she attempted to perform an exorcism. Detention officers at the jail reported hearing her exclaim, “I revoke you demons.”
