BISHOPVILLE, SC (WIS) -

A 27-year-old inmate at Lee Correctional Institution in Bishopville has died, according to officials with the state Department of Corrections.

The Lee County Coroner's Office identified the man as 27-year-old Victor Rogers, but has not revealed the cause of death.

Corrections officials say Rogers was found dead in his cell by corrections officers on Tuesday morning.

An autopsy is scheduled to be performed on Wednesday.

Agency records show Rogers had been in prison since February 2013.

The case is currently under investigation by the Corrections Department and SLED.

Members of Rogers' family have contacted the group Figting Social Injustice Together and plan a news conference in Greenville Wednesday to announce claims the Department of Corrections is not conducting a fair investigation.
