CAMP HILL, Pa. (AP) - Authorities are investigating after an inmate was found dead in his cell at a central Pennsylvania prison.

Officials say 33-year-old Joseph Diorio was found dead around 4 p.m. Wednesday at the State Correctional Institution at Camp Hill.

The Cumberland County coroner’s office will determine the official cause of death and state police are investigating.
