Inquiry after prisoner found dead

Post  Jennie on Thu Jun 19, 2008 10:32 pm

An inquiry has been launched after a 39-year-old man was found hanged in his cell at Lincoln Prison.

Paramedics were called to the scene on Friday morning but the prisoner, named as Paul Murphy, was pronounced dead shortly afterwards.

He was jailed in August last year after breaching a licence granting his early release from a previous sentence.

The Prison Service has confirmed that Murphy had been identified as being at risk of suicide.

He had already served three years and five months in prison for burglary.

A spokesman for the Prison Service said their sympathies were with the 39-year-old's family.
