MANCHESTER, N.H. — Officials are investigating the death of an inmate from Orange, who was being held on multiple charges of sex crimes against a juvenile.

Keith Sullivan, 38, was pronounced dead at 4:21 p.m. Wednesday after he was transported from the Hillsborough County House of Corrections to Elliot Hospital in Manchester. He was unresponsive during the ambulance ride to the hospital, the Associated Press reported.

Sullivan had been arrested in Nashua, N.H., last month after a lengthy investigation by the Nashua Police Department into claims by a juvenile that Sullivan had molested him.

According to a statement by the Nashua Police Department, detectives received information in January that Sullivan had sexually assaulted the juvenile, who was known to Sullivan, several years ago.

After furthering the investigation and obtaining a warrant, police arrested Sullivan on June 27. Sullivan was charged with three counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault, special felony, with extortion and kidnapping.

The nature of Sullivan’s death has not yet been released. The death is under investigation by police and corrections officials.

The Hillsborough County Department of Corrections was unable to be reached for comment by press time.
