INMATE FOUND DEAD AT STAFFORD CREEK

July 27, 2011

 

An offender at Stafford Creek Corrections Center near Aberdeen was found dead inside his cell this morning. At about 8:35 a.m. staff members found Daniel Johnson, 54, unconscious with a bag over his head. The medical staff was unable to resuscitate him. A staff physician pronounced Johnson dead at 8:51 a.m. The Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death. The Grays Harbor Coroner’s Office also responded to calls by prison administrators. Stafford Creek will conduct a separate investigation to determine what happened. Johnson began his prison sentence in 1993 after he was convicted of two counts of second-degree murder in Lewis County. He was scheduled to complete his prison sentence in March 2015. He had not committed a serious infraction since 1994.  Johnson had been at Stafford Creek since he was transferred from McNeil Island Corrections Center in May 2010. He was in a minimum-security living unit.
