Convicted murderer dies in Iowa prison

CLARINDA (KWWL) -- A man convicted of Second Degree Murder in Pottawattamie County died Monday at the Clarinda Correctional Facility.

Alfred Eugene Myre, 44, was found sitting face down at a yard table at around 7:05 p.m.

After performing CPR, Myre was taken to the Clarinda Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 7:58 p.m.

They initially believed that Myre died from natural causes due to ongoing medical problems from a brain injury suffered in a motorcycle accident.  However, preliminary autopsy findings show the cause of death to be "blunt force abdominal injuries causing internal bleeding".

The Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation is continuing to look into the incident.

Myre was serving 50 years after being convicted of Second Degree Murder in Pottawattamie County. His sentence began on September 5, 1991.
