Man, 28, dies in Oregon State Penitentiary custody

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Officials said this week a 28-year-old Oregon man serving a sentence for criminal mischief and robbery died in custody Sept. 6. The Oregonian/OregonLive reports Devin Michael Stephen Harris, of Lyons, who had been incarcerated at the Oregon State Penitentiary, died at a local hospital, according to the Oregon Department of Corrections. The department didn’t release the cause or manner of his death. It is unlikely Morris died from COVID-19 because the state released his name and generally does not identify inmates who succumb to the coronavirus.
