The Georgia Department of Corrections is investigating the inmate fight that led to a convicted child molesters death Friday.
Jeffrey Lee McDonald died as a result of injuries sustained during an altercation with another inmate at Central State Prison on March 14, department spokeswoman Lisa Rodriguez-Presley stated in an email late Friday.
The Telegraph inquired about whether anyone was charged in McDonalds death, but nothing more was released about the fight.
Two weeks after the incident, Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones pronounced McDonald dead Friday afternoon.
He was jumped on and suffered a closed head injury, Jones said.
Normally the Corrections Department conducts the investigation, he said, but Jones also notified the Bibb County Sheriffs Office since McDonalds death will count in Bibbs yearly homicide total.
