Sixty four days after it opened, an inmate has died at the new Edmonton Remand Centre.

A source told CBC News that the man was in a mental health unit when it appears he committed suicide.

The source says staff at the remand centre found him alive around 4 a.m. this morning, but that he died shortly after.

This is the first death at the facility.

The medical examiner is investigating.
