A 52-year-old inmate has been found hanged inside a Connecticut prison.
The state Department of Correction says staff conducting a routine tour of the Carl Robinson Correctional Institution in Enfield at about 6:30 a.m. Friday found Christopher Lyons of Simsbury inside his cell with a ligature tied around his neck.
The department did not say whether they believe the death was a suicide, but say Lyons was the only person in the cell.
