For the second time in as many weeks, an inmate in the custody of the Winnipeg Remand Centre has died.

Justice officials confirmed that a man in the custody of the remand centre died in hospital Tuesday. The news comes after a man in the custody of the same remand centre died the morning of Oct. 12.

The identities of the men have not been released for privacy reasons and no other information on the circumstances leading to their deaths was released.

As required by law, both deaths will be reported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner and Manitoba Corrections will launch an internal review.

In the case of the Oct. 12 death, it was reported to the Independent Investigation Unit of Manitoba as required by law because the man had recently come into contact with police prior to his death.

The unit investigates all serious incidents involving police officers in Manitoba.
