A 61-year-old inmate at the medium-security Bath Institution has died, the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) has reported.

According to CSC, James Robinson died of apparent natural causes on Thursday, Sept. 7, 2023, at the federal penitentiary, which houses up to 516 inmates. Robinson’s next of kin have been notified, CSC stated.

At the time of his death, Robinson had been serving an indeterminate sentence for sexual assault. That sentence commenced on July 19, 1996, CSC said.

“As in all cases involving the death of an inmate, the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) will review the circumstances,” the federal correctional authority said in a press release on Friday, Sept. 8, 2023.

“CSC policy requires that the police and the coroner be notified.”
