  • Print

Correctional Service Canada says inmate Devon Earl Sampson was found unresponsive in his cell at Stony Mountain Institution on Saturday and pronounced dead.

Sampson, 34, had been in prison since 2011 serving a sentence of five years, six months for robbery and obstructing a police officer.

As in all cases involving the death of an inmate, federal officials said, the police and the coroner have been notified, and Correctional Service Canada will review the circumstances of the incident.
