EL DORADO, Kan. (KWCH) - An inmate died Thursday at the El Dorado Correctional Facility.

The inmate, identified as Ryan Mitchell, was serving a 176-month sentence for intent to distribute and a weapons charge. He had been in prison since Oct. 2018.

Per protocol, when an inmate dies in the custody of KDOC, the death will be investigated by KDOC and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI).
