UMATILLA, OR -  The Oregon State Criminal Investigation Division is looking into how a 67-year-old inmate died in Umatilla. 

The Oregon Corrections Department says staffers at Two Rivers Correctional Institution found Larry Hurst unconscious in his cell Saturday night.  They tried to revive him before paramedics arrived and took him to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The Corrections Department says a preliminary investigation shows no clear evidence of any crime.

Hurst was serving time for five counts of marijuana delivery to a minor and one count of attempted second-degree sodomy out of Deschutes County.

His earliest release date was January 2015.
