Man in Maine State Prison Dies; Cause of Death Not Released

A man serving sentences at Maine State Prison for probation revocations was pronounced dead Saturday, the Maine Department of Corrections confirmed.

Jeremiah F. Young, age 48, had been at the facility since September 2015 for sentences stemming from probation revocations for robbery, misuse of identification, and theft, according to a press release from the state. His longest sentence was for less than 5 years.

The Maine Department of Corrections did not release a cause of death at the time.

The Bangor Daily News reported this was the second inmate to die at that facility this week. On April 8, a 57-year-old man convicted of sexual assault was found dead in his cell.
