Vermont State Police are investigating the death of an inmate at the Correctional Center in Newport.
The Corrections Department says Robert Mossey, 38, of Burlington, was found unconscious Friday afternoon. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The Corrections commissioner says Mossey's death does not appear to have been caused by an assault and is not suspicious. They believe it could be a suicide.
The medical examiner will do an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
