Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Published reports say an Aramark Correctional Services food service worker at the Kinross Correctional Facility in the eastern U.P. is suspected of approaching an inmate about arranging to have another inmate killed.
According to the Detroit Free Press, State Police at the Sault Ste. Marie post have sent a warrant request to the Chippewa County Prosecutor’s Office following a lengthy investigation and are awaiting a response.
The report says an inmate complained in July that a food service worker approached him about arranging to kill an inmate held at a downstate facility.
The worker was placed on a Corrections Department “stop order”, which bans the worker from prison property, but has not been arrested pending the conclusion of the investigation.
Further details are not being released as the investigation continues.
