Ellsworth Inmate Dies Due to COVID-19 Complications

Lauren FitzgeraldNovember 3, 2020

An Ellsworth Correctional Facility (ECF) resident who died Monday, November 2 had tested positive for COVID-19. This is second resident death from ECF, and the ninth resident death related to COVID-19 for the department.

The resident was moved October 28 to the Lansing Correctional Facility (LCF) COVID-19 Management Unit (CMU) after testing positive for the virus. He was transported from LCF to the hospital on October 29.

The resident was a 76-year-old while male with underlying medical concerns that contributed to his condition.

He was serving a 176 months sentence for two counts of aggravated indecent solicitation of a child and aggravated endangerment of a child.

The Ellsworth Correctional Facility opened in 1988. Serving only males, the Central Unit provides housing for 820 multi-custody residents and the East Unit provides housing for 95 minimum-custody residents.
