Inmate has died at Sarnia Jail

Questions remain as to the circumstances in which an inmate died at Sarnia Jail Thursday, although at least one Sarnia media is quoting sources as saying the death was a suicide.

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services would not comment other than confirm that an inmate had died.

Under Ontario law, a death while in custody (other than by natural causes0 triggers an automatic inquest.

LambtonShield.com is awaiting independent confirmation from the Ministry as to the identity of the deceased inmate.
