KBI investigating inmate’s death
The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is continuing its probe into the circumstances leading to the death of a Lansing Correctional Facility inmate.
Kyle Smith, a KBI spokesman, said he couldn't talk specifically about the investigation other than to say it was ongoing.
James Corley, 35, was found injured Wednesday evening, July 26, in the minimum security East Unit at the prison, according to a news release from the prison.
He was transferred to Overland Park Regional Medical Center, underwent surgery on Thursday, July 27, and died later that day.
The Kansas Bureau of Investigation has been notified about the inmate's death in accordance with state law, according to the news release.
Corley was in prison for one count of manufacturing a controlled substance and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia in 2002 in Dickinson County. He was sentenced for the crimes in 2005.
