The provincial coroner’s office says an investigation into the death of an inmate at the Sudbury jail is ongoing.
The man, whose identity has not been released, died on July 21.
The investigation will determine whether or not an inquest will be conducted, Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services spokesperson Laura Blondeau said.
If it is determined the inmate did not die of natural causes, a full coroner’s inquest will be scheduled to determine the cause of death.
Blondeau said the coroner’s office only provides details regarding the nature of death to family and police.
