The Mysterious Death Of Anthony “Trey” Myrie At Greene County Correctional Facility

  • Myrie’s wife was on the phone with him when he was sent to “the box”
  • Later in the afternoon Myrie’s wife received a call saying her husband was dead
  • Myrie’s body was allegedly missing for an unknown amount of time
  • A statement from the facility died “following an incident involving several incarcerated individuals”

A viral post on Instagram is hopefully going to help a family get answers over the mysterious death of 24-year-old Anthony “Trey” Myrie at Greene Correctional Facility in Greene County, New York.

Myrie’s brother and wife made the lengthy post after being informed of his death. According to the family, on February 11, at 11:16 am, Myries was on the phone with his wife, but was said to have sounded stressed. Around 2:00 pm his wife received a message from another inmate’s family saying Myrie was put into what they call “the box.”

Shortly after, Myrie called to inquire as to why her husband was in the box. She was told that he was not in the box and was in general population. Then at 4:27 pm, Myrie’s wife received another phone call saying he was in critical condition. At 5:19 pm, his wife received another call saying Myrie had passed.

The post goes on to claim Myrie’s wife was told his body was taken to Albany Medical Center. However, when the wife called, there was no record of him. Family members of other inmates messaged her and told her they believed Myrie was seriously injured by correctional officers.

Evan Lyndell Parker Said To Have Hanged Himself In Waller County Jail Where Sandra Bland Died

The post went viral and caught the attention of people around the country, including Cardi B and Meek Mill. The Department of Corrections finally responded in a statement saying Myrie was pronounced dead on Monday “following an incident involving several incarcerated individuals.” The statement also read, “The investigation into the incident is ongoing and the Department has no further comment.”

Unfortunately for the family, the statement gave no answers into Myrie’s death, which is quite common. The process is a long and slow one that all too often does not give the family the answers they are looking for. Officials at the Albany Medical Center have told CBS 6 Myrie may not have been a listed patient at the time of transport. Which could explain why they were not receiving any answers.

Myrie was arrested in November 2018 for criminal sale of a controlled substance in the third degree. He was set to be released in 2024. A Go Fund Me has been set up to help the family with funeral costs. The description for the campaign reads as follows.


On February 11th 2019, our lives changed forever. In the middle of Black History Month we received news that our loved one, Anthony “Trey” Myrie at only 24 years old became yet another victim to the system. We were informed by the families of other inmates that he died at Greene Correctional Facility. Today February 14th, marks the fourth day of Anthony’s death and finally discovering the location of his body. There are no records of what actually occurred, and the statements made on behalf of Greene Correctional Facility seem to be false. It appears, the correctional officers at the facility are responsible for his death, and are attempting to cover it up. Greene Correctional facility is notorious for mistreating inmates. On Valentines Day, Anthony’s wife and grandmother are distraught as they try to piece together half of a story about the death of Anthony Myrie. At this time, we call on members of the community to assist us in seeking justice, and hopefully garnering the truth. Unfortunately, Anthony‘s death is not only tragic and unexpected, but also a financial hardship. Our family is now in need of funds for funeral cost, casket, cemetery plot and all other related expenses. We appreciate and humbly request any donations of any amount, and if you are unable to contribute monetarily we’d appreciate if you spread Anthony’s story via social media #justicefortrey. We would hate to see this be another case of police brutality swept under the rug. If you are interested in helping us get justice please email: [email protected]
