Warren — A 57-year-old inmate at the Maine State Prison died Sunday morning, April 8, but there is nothing to indicate anything suspicious, according to the Maine Department of Public Safety.

Gregory E. Leeman was found unresponsive in his cell and died at the prison, according to Maine Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland. An autopsy will be done. He said nothing at this point indicates anything suspicious.

The Maine Department of Corrections issued a statement Sunday morning that Leeman had died at about 6:35 a.m.

Consistent with the Corrections Department’s policy and Maine Attorney General’s Office protocols, the Maine State Police and Medical Examiner were notified.

Leeman was serving multiple sentences, including a three-year sentence for assault on an officer and a 10-year sentence (with all but two years suspended, and four years' probation) for gross sexual assault in Cumberland County. He was scheduled to be released in January 2019.
