The United States, by and through undersigned counsel, hereby moves that this case against defendant Donald Lapre be dismissed, with prejudice, for the following reasons. At approximately 8:30 a.m., on October 02, 2011, the U.S. Marshals Service was notified that defendant Donald Lapre was found deceased in his cell at the Corrections Corporation of America Detention Center located in Florence, Arizona. Life saving measures attempted by CCA Detention staff were met with negative results. The Florence Emergency Medical Service and Police Department were called and responded to the facility. The Florence Police Department has assumed investigative responsibility in this matter. The nature and cause of death are being investigated by the Florence Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Service. It is believed that the cause of defendant’s death was suicide.
Undersigned counsel has contacted Pat Gitre, counsel for defendant, and she has no objection to this motion.
