The jail in question, Elgin-Middlesex Detention Centre (EMDC), is nicknamed “the devil’s playground”.


“Yes, I admit that I killed him,” Anthony George told The Fifth Estate in the cell-sized visitors’ room of an Ontario jail. He’s been locked in segregation for most of the past four years for killing a fellow inmate.

“There’s no reason behind it … I was intoxicated. I don’t understand why it happened myself.”

When asked what he wants people to know about him, he said, “I guess they should know that I’m sorry for what happened.”

George’s cellmate Adam Kargus, 29, was found beaten to death on Nov. 1, 2013, in the shower area of the infamous Elgin-Middlesex Detention Centre (EMDC) in London, Ont.
