Mississippi prison crisis: 18th inmate dies since Dec. 29, second in 24 hours Lici Beveridge The Clarion-Ledger Published 3:04 PM EST Feb 16, 2020 JACKSON, Miss. – A state inmate died in state custody early Sunday, the second in the last 24 hours. Rankin County Coroner David Ruth confirmed he collected a body from the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility and took it to the medical examiner's office. "I don't suspect foul play," he said."But that will depend on the autopsy." Ruth said he had not contacted the inmate's family so was not releasing any more information about the death. The inmate's death is the 18th since Dec. 29, when an inmate was killed during a"major disturbance" at the South Mississippi Correctional Institution.
