Whitewater witness James McDougal did not have access to his heart medication in the hours before he died in prison, a federal government report revealed.

McDougal, a former business partner of President Clinton, also was not seen by a doctor although he complained of feeling ill the day before his death, according to a report obtained by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram under the Freedom of Information Act.McDougal was moved from his regular cell to solitary confinement a day before his death as punishment for failing to provide a urine sample for a drug test. He had complained of being unable to provide urine because of his medications.

During the move, guards did not find McDougal's heart medication because they did not want to search McDougal's cell and disturb his sleeping cellmate.
