The staff member from Wednesday’s assault has been released from University of Iowa hospitals and is at home recovering.
The investigation into this matter continues. So far there are no indications that the incident that occurred on Saturday is related to Wednesday’s assault. However, both offenders have ties to groups affiliated with White Supremacy.
The institution is conducting thorough searches of all areas of the facility as well as plans are being drafted for modifications to Housing Unit One where Wednesday’s assault occurred. Staffing plans are also being evaluated.
Visits continue to be suspended and the offenders are unable to access the phone system at this time.
