Inmate dies in Hope hospital

Edward Dundas was serving life sentence at Kent for second degree murder of father

An inmate at Kent Institution has died in hospital.

Institution officials report that on Wednesday, Nov. 13, Edward Paul Dundas, an inmate at Kent Institution died at Fraser Canyon Hospital in Hope.

At the time of his death, Dundas, 24, had been serving a sentence of life, for second degree murder and attempted murder. The inmate’s next of kin have been notified of his death.

Dundas plead guilty to second-degree murder in the death of his father in August, 2009.

Media reports say the senior Dundas, aged 50, was found dead in his apartment in Prince Rupert, and a second 50-year old man was found suffering from knife wounds.

Dundas was arrested many months later, and sentenced in April, 2011.

As in all cases involving the death of an inmate, the institution said that the police and the coroner have been notified, and the Correctional Service of Canada will review the circumstances of the incident.
