There are hundreds of prisons in Texas – I mean, it makes sense given our size – but not all of them are well known. Not all of them are known for being the place infamous killers call (or called) home, or where activity so dangerous it makes headlines occurs. But these 5 places aren’t just any old jail. They’re the most vile and dangerous prisons in the state of Texas.
Have you heard bad things about any of these jails? If so, what? What other jails are known for dangerous activity and/or well-known inmates? Let me know in the comments!
