Another Mississippi Prisoner Has Died After Falling Ill

LEAKESVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — Another Mississippi prisoner has died after falling ill. 60-year old Rodney Brown was serving a 60-year sentence at the South Mississippi Correctional Institution for driving under the influence and mayhem after pleading guilty to causing a crash that killed two members of the National Guard in 2006. He was pronounced dead Saturday morning at Greene County Hospital in Leakesville; an autopsy will be performed as Brown had a history of medical issues. Brown was at least the 37th inmate to die in a Mississippi prison since late December. The state prison system came under investigation by the U.S. Justice Department after several inmates who were killed or injured during outbursts of violence in late December and early January.
