Corrections officers found 52 year old Michael Shaw unresponsive in his bed around 5:45 a.m. Medical staff tried to resuscitate Shaw to no avail. He was pronounced dead at 6:32 a.m.

Shaw entered DOC custody on July 16, 2002, on one count of sex abuse in the first degree and one count of mistreatment in the first degree out of Marion County. His earliest release date was September 28, 2025.

Next of kin has been notified.
