Ms. Lipton:
Crossroads Correctional Center in Shelby has provided the attached form relating to your request for inmate death records. Thomas Rose is the only inmate to die at the Shelby facility since 2000.

Under Montana Department of Corrections (DOC) procedures, CCC inmates who are terminally ill are transferred to DOC facilities with larger infirmaries.
