A convicted child molester is believed to have been beaten to death at the New Castle Correctional Facility.
Jeremiah Taylor was found at the bottom of a stairwell inside the prison Thursday. He was taken to an area hospital and then flown to Methodist Hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries.
Taylor had been incarcerated at New Castle since July of 2012, and was serving eight years for a conviction on a Child Molest charge out of Noble County.
An investigation into his death is underway.
