An inmate has died while in the custody of Correctional Service Canada (CSC) at the Regional Treatment Centre at Millhaven Institution.

According to CSC, the inmate, John Andrews, 72, died of apparent natural causes. At the time of his death, Andrews had been serving a sentence of 58 years, four months, and 14 days since September 1, 1970. This sentence was the result of Andrews being convicted of:

  • Armed robbery
  • Escape from lawful custody
  • Break and enter
  • Possession of property obtained by crime
  • Possession of an unregistered, restricted weapon

The inmate’s next of kin have been notified of his death, and, as in all cases involving the death of an inmate, CSC will review the circumstances. CSC policy requires that police and the coroner be notified of the death of an inmate.
