PORTLAND, Oregon — State police detectives are investigating the death of an inmate at the Columbia River Correctional Institution in Portland.

The Oregon Department of Corrections says 50-year-old Christopher Mabrey was found dead in his cell Friday afternoon. He did not share a cell with anyone.

Mabrey could have been released from prison in April. He entered the prison system in 2009 following a burglary conviction out of Washington County.

According to news reports from 2009, police arrested Mabrey after finding more than 5,000 stolen items at a home. The person who lived where the items were recovered had been selling stolen goods on eBay.
