Parchman inmate passes away Monday


An inmate housed at the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman has died after being hospitalized frequently in the last several months.

Harold Ramsey, 62, died Monday at the Delta Regional Medical Center in Greenville, where he was transferred from the prison hospital.

Ramsey was suffering from a chronic illness. An autopsy, however, will determine the official cause and the manner of death.
