Ex-Russian spy prisoner dies in his cell

(MENAFN) The United States Bureau of Prisons stated that previous FBI agent Robert Hanssen, who was given a life sentence in prison as a Russian spy, was deceased when they discovered him on Monday inside his cell at the Florence ADMAX in Colorado.

When discovering Hanssen`s body, jail employees attempted to revive him and “requested emergency medical services,” Bureau of Prisons representative Kristie Beshears stated in a declaration. “The inmate was subsequently pronounced dead by outside emergency medical personnel.”

As the man who is 79 years old was being in prison for his life sentence in the Administrative Maximum Facility, the supermax security prison infamous for keeping prisoners in solitary for nearly the whole day.

Hanssen was captured in February 2001, after making a dead drop in a Virginia park. He pleaded guilty to trading classified data to the Soviet Union and then Russia, and was sentenced last year.
