A con­vict­ed pris­on­er was found dead in his cell at the Max­i­mum Se­cu­ri­ty Prison in Arou­ca on Mon­day morn­ing.

How­ev­er, foul play is not sus­pect­ed.


A prison of­fi­cial con­firmed to the Guardian Me­dia that in­mate Ja­son Jones was found dead in his cell at about 7 am.

It was said that Jones was un­well in re­cent times.

He was con­vict­ed for rob­bery and was cur­rent­ly serv­ing a two-year im­pris­on­ment sen­tence.

An au­top­sy has been or­dered to con­firm the ac­tu­al cause of death.
