Locked 'til death

En 1903 se instaló en la localidad de Dois Rios (Isla Grande, Brasil) una colonia penal conocida como "Colônia Correcional".

 

A partir de 1931, con la apertura del camino que conduce a Vila do Abraão y luego de varias reformas, pasó a llamarse "Instituto Penal Cândido Mendes".

 

El mismo albergó presos altamente peligrosos hasta 1994, cuando fue desactivado por orden del Gobierno Estatal.
