Investigation Underway in Death of French Robertson Unit Inmate
ABILENE, TX -- An inmate at the French Robertson Unit in Abilene has died and an investigation into his weekend death is underway.
Seth Donnelly, 29, was found unresponsive in his cell on Friday and later died at Hendrick Medical Center on Sunday, according to KTXS.
An autopsy will be performed on Donnelly, but foul play is not suspected in the investigation run by the Office of the Inspector General-TDCJ.
Investigators believe that "illicit drugs" could be a contributing factor in the cause of Donnelly's death.
Donnelly's family told KTXS they were contacted on Friday and when they arrived their son was on life support. He was taken off it on Sunday.
Donnelly was serving a 12-year sentence for intoxication manslaughter out of Tarrant County.
