27 year old inmate found dead

(Prisoner found dead)…The discovery was made Saturday night.

Correctional Officers at the Calipatria State Prison were checking inmates at 11:00 pm when they encountered the man unresponsive. Deputy Coroner Rodolfo Barron said he couldn’t release the name of the 27-year-old inmate until after his family is notified of his death. He was described only as a white male. Barron said no drug paraphernalia was found in the cell, but it is suspected the death was drug related. An autopsy will be performed to try and determine the exact cause of death.
