DEMANDED TREATMENT: This undated photo provided by the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office shows Jovon Frazier. Frazier died from cancer in 2011 while he was still an inmate. “I need to see a doctor!” he wrote on his eighth treatment request form, after an X-ray came back negative. “I done put a lot of sick calls in & ya’ll keep sending me back and ain’t tell me nothing.” His medical care was managed not by the county sheriff’s office that runs the jail, but by a private company under contract, Corizon Health Inc.
