A weekend inmate death at Century Correctional Institution is under investigation.
Inmate Wesley C. Moore, 38, was pronounced deceased at the prison shortly after 7:00 p.m. Saturday.
The death is currently under investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, with assistance from the Department’s Office of the Inspector General, according to Patrick Manderfield, press secretary for the Florida Department of Corrections. He declined to release further information due to the active investigation and privacy laws. He did not specify if the death appeared to be natural or suspicious.
Moore was serving a three year, nine month sentence out of Okaloosa County for possession of a controlled substance and failing to comply with sexual offender registration requirements. He was previously convicted of unlawful sexual activity with a minor age 16-17 and robbery.
Moore’s death was the 15th inmate death at Century Correctional Institution since 2013 and the ninth since January 2017.
