Identity of inmate who died in Shediac correctional facility released

The Department of Justice and Public Safety says 49-year-old Tyler Sweeney is the inmate who died at the Southeast Regional Correctional Centre last week.

The province says Sweeney was found unresponsive in his cell on February 8th and efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.

An investigation by RCMP has ruled out foul play at this point, with initial indications pointing to natural causes.

Government says the Coroner Services is continuing its investigation.
