WARREN — A 28-year-old inmate at the Bolduc Correctional Facility in Warren died Sunday, the Maine Department of Corrections announced Sunday evening.

Dana R. Bartlett of Lewiston died shortly before 6 p.m. at the facility known as the prison farm. A suspected cause of death was not released.

The Corrections Department said that, consistent with its policy and Maine Attorney General’s Office protocols, the Maine State Police and the Office of Chief Medical Examiner were notified.

State police are investigating the death as they do in every prison death, according to Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety. He said a state police team was sent to the prison and more information would likely be released Monday morning.

Bartlett had been sentenced March 22 in Androscoggin County Superior Court to 16 months in prison for operating after habitual offender revocation and theft by unauthorized taking. He was scheduled to be released on March 28, 2019.
