An inmate death at the Drumheller Institution this week had nothing to do with drugs or violence.
A statement from Correctional Service Canada (CSC) says 72 year old Gary Richard Walker died on Thursday of apparent natural causes following an illness.
Walker was serving a three year sentence for fraud that started December 8, 2016.
His next of kin have been notified. As in all cases involving the death of an inmate, CSC will review the circumstances and contact the police and the medical examiner if required.
