VALDOSTA, Ga. (AP) -- Officials in Georgia are investigating the death of an inmate at a state prison.

According to an announcement by the state prison system, 29-year-old Anthony Hann was found unresponsive in his cell at Valdosta State Prison Monday night. Medical workers were unable to revive him.

Officials aren't sure what caused the man's death, and an autopsy is being performed. Hann was serving 20 years for a robbery conviction in Clayton County.

Hann is the fourth inmate to die at the prison this year.

Officials have not yet released a cause of death for an inmate who passed away in June. Two inmates died in February after a mattress caught fire in their cell.
