Florida's Department of Corrections says they are investigating the death of an inmate in Washington County.

Richard Smith, 34, died Wednesday at the Northwest Florida Reception Center in Greenhead.

The Medical Examiner for the 14th Judicial Circuit, The Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Inspector General for the Department of Corrections are all investigating the death.

Because this is an ongoing investigation, DOC officials declined to say how Smith died.
