OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma Corrections Department has released findings on the death of an inmate who was bludgeoned to death with a food tray inside of a private prison.

The corrections department determined 30-year-old Bryan Blackburn died last month from blunt force trauma.

Authorities say they believe Blackburn’s cellmate at the Davis Correctional Facility was high on bath salts at the time.
