A Prince Rupert man serving a life sentence at an Agassiz prison has died in hospital.
Kent Institution officials report that Edward Paul Dundas, 24, passed away at Fraser Canyon Hospital in Hope, B.C. on Nov. 13. Dundas was in the midst of serving a life sentence for second degree murder and attempted murder.
Details surrounding Dundas’ death are not being released by the Correctional Service of Canada citing privacy concerns. As in all cases involving the death of an inmate, the institution said the police and the coroner have been notified, and the Correctional Service of Canada will review the circumstances of the incident.
Dundas was arrested in August 2009 after police discovered the body of his father, Clifford Dundas, and another man suffering from 15 stab wounds in an apartment in the 800 block of 2nd Ave. West. He plead guilty to the charges on Jan. 10, 2011 and was subsequently sentenced that April.
