Murder Inquiry Launched In Lincoln Prison


A murder investigation has been launched after a 73-year-old prisoner – serving a nine-month sentence for voyeurism – was found dead in his cell in Lincoln.

Alan Goode, a serial peeping tom, was jailed in October after he was found lying on a cubicle floor in the women’s toilets of a Leicester shopping centre.

An ambulance attended after staff found him in his cell at Lincoln Prison at around 5:45am on Thursday morning but he was pronounced dead at the scene, the Prison Service said.

A 35-year-old male inmate – understood to have been sharing a cell with Goode – has been arrested in connection with the incident, Lincolnshire Police said, as it opened a murder investigation.
