LANSING, Kan. (KAKE) – The Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) and the Kansas Department of Corrections are investigating a homicide that happened Friday night at the Lansing Correctional Facility.
 
 
The Lansing Correctional Facility (LCF) contacted the KBI just after 9:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 6, to report the suspicious death of a resident of the LCF. Unless an inmate dies who is regularly seen by a physician, or the death is a natural one as evidenced by an autopsy, the KBI must investigate those who die while in Kansas jails and prisons.    
 
The KBI's initial investigation shows that just before 8:30 p.m., corrections officers from LCF were called to a two-person cell by a 25-year-old male inmate. When they arrived they found the other occupant, 62-year-old Gary Raburn, unresponsive inside the cell. He appeared to have been attacked and strangled.
 
Life-saving measures were attempted and EMS also responded, but Raburn was declared dead. 
 
An autopsy will be conducted. A suspect has been identified, but charges are pending.
 
The investigation is ongoing. Nothing further will be released at this time.
