Medical issues may have caused inmates death

(Inmate dies over the weekend)…It was reported at the Centinela State Prison.

Deputy Coroner Rodolfo Barron says the 54-year-old inmate’s name cannot be released until after the Prison notifies his family. Barron says the victim’s cellmate reported the man was having medical problems Saturday morning. He said by the time prison staff reached the cell the inmate was unresponsive. He was pronounced dead a short time later. The Deputy Coroner says an autopsy will be conducted this week to determine the exact cause of death. Barron speculated the death might have been natural, given the fact the inmate had a medical history.
