A fatal accident inquiry has determined the cause of death of a Castle Huntly prisoner, who died less than two months before his earliest release date.
William Carlin Glately Millar died, aged 64, on March 2 last year in the prison near Longforgan.
Millar’s cause of death was found to be hypertensive and ischaemic heart disease.
The fatal accident inquiry said he had a “well-documented history of heart problems, high blood pressue and type 2 diabetes as well as prostate and bladder issues”.
The inquiry was held at Perth Sheriff Court.
The death was reported to the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service, which led to a post-mortem examination on March 6 last year.
Millar was serving a four-year sentence in relation to mortgage fraud and proceeds of crime offences and his earliest release date was April 21 last year.
