An inmate died over the weekend at a privately run prison in Wheeler County, and the Georgia Department of Corrections is withholding most details while an investigation is under way.
Leonard Odom, 37, died Sunday, according to the department. He was serving 10 years on two arson charges from Toombs and Appling counties, according to the Department of Corrections’ Web site.
A department spokeswoman wouldn’t release other information about Odom’s death and said the investigation will be headed by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
Wheeler Correctional Facility Warden Ralph Kemp would only confirm that an inmate died Sunday, and he referred other questions to the department, which contracts with Corrections Corporation of America to run the prison.
The company also operates four other facilities in Georgia, according to its Web site.
