Inadequate medical care, poor food and overzealous guards was the catalyst for the deadly riot at a prison for illegal immigrants in Mississippi in May, according to an FBI agent’s affidavit, the Associated Press reports.

Inmates in the privately-run Adams County Correctional Facility in Natchez pledged to disobey orders until demands for better conditions were met, according to the affidavit.

A guard was killed, but no details about the death or who is responsible emerged from the affidavit, the AP reported.

To blame for the riot are Paisas, an affiliated group within the prison.
