Another inmate has died while in the custody of the police.

He is 38-year-old Donovan Gordon.

The Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) says it was told that he collapsed today while at the Lucea police station and was taken to the Noel Holmes Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Gordon had been in custody since September 19.

He was reportedly in possession of a vehicle for which he could not give an account.

INDECOM says it has dispatched a team to Lucea to investigate.

Last month, another inmate, Mario Deane died in custody after a severe beating.
