[ISP] Death Investigation at New Castle Correctional Facility

End Date: 2/15/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
New Castle – Pendleton District Investigators were summoned to the New Castle Correctional Facility last evening reference an inmate that had been found unconscious. Around 11:05 p.m. the inmate was found at the bottom of a stairwell inside the prison.

The inmate, Jeremiah K. Taylor, age 37 of Ligonier Indiana, was transported by ambulance to Henry County Hospital then flown by medical helicopter to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, where this morning he succumbed to his injuries.

While it is early in the investigation, investigators believe the injuries were not the result of an accident, but were the result of Taylor having been battered shortly before being found in the stairwell. Taylor had been incarcerated at New Castle since July of 2012, and was serving eight years for a conviction on a Child Molest charge out of Noble County.

The New Castle Correctional Facility is run by GEO, a private company contracted by Indiana Department of Corrections to run the facility. The investigation is ongoing, and this is all the information available for release at this time.
