Special agents with the Georgia Department of Corrections’ (GDC) Office of Professional Standards are investigating the death of an inmate at Coffee Correctional Facility in Nicholls, as a suspected homicide.


Agents have reason to believe offender Kendall Cromer (GDC#1000175901) died as a result of injuries sustained during an altercation involving another inmate on November 30.  Medical personnel responded and life saving measures were performed.  Cromer was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased by a hospital physician, at approximately 1:17 a.m.  The GDC is conducting an investigation into the death, as standard procedure.


Cromer was sentenced to serve 20 years in 2008, in Dekalb County for armed robbery.
