Resident Death at Hutchinson Correctional Facility

by Nancy Burghart last modified Nov 02, 2020 11:00 AM

A Hutchinson Correctional Facility resident who died Thursday, October 29 had tested positive for COVID-19. This is the second COVID-19 related resident death at HCF, and the eighth resident death related to COVID-19 for the department.

The resident tested positive for the virus on October 16 and was transferred to the hospital on October 19. He was a 50-year old asian or pacific islander male with underlying medical concerns that contributed to his condition.

The resident was serving a 195-month sentence for aggravated criminal sodomy. He had been incarcerated with the Kansas Department of Corrections (KDOC) since September 2015.

The Hutchinson Correctional Facility is Kansas' second-oldest prison and houses 1,884 men. Formerly know as the Kansas State Industrial Reformatory, the facility has three buildings including the Central (all custody levels), East (low-medium custody) and South (minimum) units.
