Officials investigate inmate death at New Hampshire prison
BERLIN, N.H. (AP) — Authorities in New Hampshire are investigating what they are calling the "untimely death" of an inmate at a state prison.
The state Department of Corrections in a statement Sunday said the initial investigation suggests that the inmate at the Northern New Hampshire Correctional Facility in Berlin suffered a medical event on Saturday evening, and the death is not considered suspicious.
Prison staff responded after they were made aware of an unresponsive male in a housing unit.
Life-saving measures were immediately started at the scene, but the inmate was pronounced dead at 8:40 p.m.
An autopsy is scheduled. No more information was released.
