(Pendleton, Ind.) - An Indiana Department of Corrections prisoner convicted of burglarizing numerous homes in southeastern Indiana was found dead in his prison cell.
Dakota Fraley died last week. He was found unresponsive in his cell at the Pendleton Correctional Facility, according to an IDOC communications director Margaux Auxier.
