Police investigating death at Miami Correctional Facility

Peru Tribune Staff Report

The Indiana State Police are investigating the Monday morning death of an inmate at the Miami Correctional Facility.

Lannie Morgan, 70, of South Bend, was found unresponsive in his cell shortly before 10 a.m., the State Police said in a news release Tuesday.

“An ambulance was summoned for Morgan, but he died before reaching the local hospital,” the release stated. “Investigators suspect foul play and are treating the death as a homicide.”

Morgan had been incarcerated within the Indiana Department of Correction since December 2011.

An autopsy has been conducted and results are pending, authorities said.

No other information was immediately available and police said the investigation is still active.
