Feb 22 (Reuters) - Maryland officials are investigating the death of an prison inmate who was found dead in a steam-filled cell, a prison spokesman said on Sunday.
- Louis Leysath
Vernarelli said the death occurred "under unusual circumstance."
Correctional staff performed CPR on him, but Leysath was pronounced dead a short time later.
There was no fire in the cell, and no foul play is suspected. It is unclear whether the death was accidental or a suicide, Vernarelli said.
Leysath was housed alone. The investigation is continuing. (Reporting by John Clarke; Editing by Eric Walsh)
