Inquest to be held in death at jail

Midland Mirror
December 19, 2003

The coroner has announced an inquest into the death of an inmate at the Penetanguishene jail.
Lorne Thaw, 50, was a Barrie resident who passed away on May 8, while in custody at the Central North Correctional Centre.

He was found in his cell, after he didn't respond to a roll call.

Under the Coroner's Act, an inquest must be held for the death of anyone who dies in custody.

The inquest, which begins on Monday, Feb. 9, is expected to last for four days.

Approximately 13 witnesses will be called during the inquest, which starts at 9:30 a.m. at the Midland Court House.

OPP said earlier, it appears as though Thaw died from natural causes, but a toxicology test was done. The results have yet to be released.

Dr. P. Savage will preside as inquest coroner.
