Autopsy Set For Oregon Inmate Serving Time In Montana Prison
Officials say an autopsy will be performed on a Montana State Prison inmate who died at a hospital in Missoula.
The Montana Standard reports that the cause of 54-year-old Carey Edwards' death has not yet been determined. Prison spokeswoman Amy Barton wouldn't say why Edwards was sent to St. Patrick Hospital, where he died Monday, other than it was for a medical emergency.
Edwards was an Oregon inmate who had been housed at the Montana prison since 2000 as an Interstate Compact Transfer.
He was serving a life sentence after being convicted of murder in Multnomah County, Oregon in 1989.
