Probe Into Death at HMP Nottingham
An investigation has been launched after a 29-year-old man from Derby was found dead in his prison cell.
Shalane Blackwood, from Sinfin, was found unresponsive at HMP Nottingham on the morning of Wednesday, August 5. The cause of death is unknown and a file is being prepared for the coroner.
Blackwood was jailed for conspiracy to possess a shotgun in August 2012 and was on licence recall.
A Prison Service spokesman said: ``CPR was attempted but he was pronounced dead at 6.52am by paramedics. As with all deaths in custody, the independent prisons and probation ombudsman will conduct an investigation.''
