An inmate in a mental health support unit was pepper sprayed just before his sudden death in Mt Eden prison, Stuff reports. Multiple investigations, including a police inquiry, are underway after the death of the young man in the central Auckland prison on Tuesday morning. “The death is still subject to investigation. Reporting that speculates on the cause of death has the potential to cause further harm and distress to the family of the man at this difficult time,” the Department of Corrections said in a statement.
