Inmate dies at Bath Institution


An inmate has died at Bath Institution, near Kingston.

Corrections Canada staff haven’t released details of exactly what happened, but say 42 year-old Michael Coelho died while in custody today and couldn’t be resuscitated by first responders.

Coelho was serving a two year sentence for breaching probation, dangerous driving and obstructing police and had been in custody since late April of last year.

As in all cases of inmates dying in custody, the police and coroner have been notified and Corrections Canada will be reviewing the circumstances of what happened.
