HELENA — The state is investigating the death of an inmate at the Cascade County Regional Detention Center in Great Falls.

The Department of Justice said the 53-year-old man was found dead in his cell during a routine check at about 3 a.m. Tuesday. He was alone in his cell.

The Cascade County sheriff's office identified the inmate as Douglas Alan Stratton. The sheriff's office asked Division of Criminal Investigation agents to investigate the death because the sheriff's office runs the jail.

Fergus County Coroner Dick Brown will oversee the case. No information on Stratton's cause of death was released.
