Investigation launched after EMDC inmate dies in hospital - London


London police say an investigation has been launched following the death of an Elgin Middlesex Detention Centre inmate.

Police say a man was transported to hospital from the jail on Sunday and died Monday evening.

“Members of our Major Crime Section are working with the office of the Chief Coroner with respect to the investigation,” police told Global News.

Global News has reached out to the Ministry of the Solicitor General and is awaiting a response.

The death comes less than four months after another inmate death, in November 2020.

In that case, Kevin Egan, a partner at McKenzie Lake Lawyers who represents families of deceased inmates, said he had information that the individual died shortly after admission and was found during nightly medication rounds.

Egan also said at that time that there had been at least 16 deaths in the past 10 years at the facility.

More information to come.
