OAK PARK HEIGHTS, MN (KDAL) - The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating the strangulation death of an inmate at the State Correctional Facility in Oak Park Heights. 30 year old Shane Cooper, who was convicted of raping a child under 13 in Duluth last year, was found dead in his cell. The medical examiner has ruled the death a homicide. A surveillance camera caught another inmate entering Cooper's cell shortly before his body was discovered. That 39 year old inmate is the sole suspect in the death of Cooper.
