Interviews of other incarcerated individuals in close proximity to Mr. McIntosh were conducted and video surveillance was reviewed, neither of which officials say revealed any staff misconduct or involvement in the incident.The investigation is ongoing at this time. All deaths in DOCCS’ facilities are also reviewed by the State Commission of Correction.McIntosh was serving time for two counts of second-degree robbery and a count of first-degree criminal contempt.last_img read more
