Officials at the Prince Albert Correctional Centre are investigating the sudden death of an inmate originally from Patuanak.


The 50-year-old man was found dead in his cell at around 9:30 Saturday morning.


According to centre spokesman Paul Blain, the cause of death appears to be suicide.


Blain says the man was in remand awaiting his next court appearance on some outstanding charges.


As in all cases where a person dies in custody, Blain says an inquest will be ordered.
