Edward Hatch Death, Bucks County PA Inmate Dies At The Bucks County Correctional Facility

Edward Hatch Death – The Bucks County Correctional Facility is grappling with another tragedy as Edward Hatch, a 46-year-old man from Philadelphia, has become the fourth inmate to lose his life within its confines. The inmate was discovered unresponsive in his cell at the Doylestown prison early on Monday morning.

Edward Hatch had been incarcerated at the facility since December 12, according to information provided by the Bucks County Correctional Facility Staff. The Bucks County Coroner, Meredith Buck, confirmed the identity of the deceased and expressed the coroner’s office’s commitment to conducting an independent investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death.

The autopsy, conducted on Tuesday, did not reveal any overt signs of external trauma. However, the cause and manner of Edward Hatch’s death are still under investigation by the Bucks County Coroner’s Office. The coroner emphasized the seriousness with which her office approaches in-custody deaths, aiming to determine the comprehensive details surrounding each case.

This marks the fourth inmate death at the Bucks County Correctional Facility this year. In March, a 48-year-old female inmate succumbed to a perforated peptic ulcer after being taken to Doylestown Health. She had been incarcerated in February on a retail theft charge. In January, Octavius Davis, 35, of Croydon, was found unresponsive in the facility and died as a result of a drug overdose.

The Bucks County Coroner’s Office extends its deepest condolences to the family of Edward Hatch during this challenging time. As the investigation unfolds, authorities will work diligently to provide answers and clarity regarding the circumstances leading to his tragic demise. The series of inmate deaths at the facility this year raises questions about the safety and well-being of individuals within the correctional system, prompting ongoing scrutiny and calls for improved oversight.
