A second transgender woman has been found dead at a male prison in England within the space of a few weeks. A guard found Joanne Latham, 38, dead in her cell at Woodhill prison in Milton Keynes on Friday. She had told friends she would kill herself if she was sent to a men's prison. An investigation was launched into her death. The unit holds about 60 prisoners, usually those who have committed serious offences and then offended again while in prison and are considered too dangerous for the regular prison population. As with all deaths in custody there will be an investigation by the independent Prisons and Probation Ombudsman."
