Corrections officials, the coroner and police are investigating the death of a gang leader in a Saskatchewan prison.
Corrections officials say they found 40-year-old Richard Daniel Wolfe in the exercise yard of the Saskatchewan Penitentiary on Friday.
Officials say he was in need of medical attention and later died in a Prince Albert hospital, they didn’t give any other details.
Wolfe was serving a sentence for assault and sexual assault.
He and his brother Daniel founded the Indian Posse Street Gang in Manitoba in the late 80’s.
Police say the aboriginal gang spread through western Canada and northern Ontario.
The gang has been linked with crime and violence in and out of prison walls for many years.
Daniel Wolfe was killed during a brawl at the Saskatchewan Penitentiary in 2010, while he was serving time for a double murder.
