In July 2004, a new law went into effect in Kansas that required the Kansas Bureau of Investigation to look into the deaths of all inmates.
Since then, statistics show that 46 inmates have died. Of those, 28 were from natural causes. Another 14 were ruled suicides -- 12 in county jails and two in prisons.
The good news? No inmates have killed other inmates during that period. The last time that happened was in 2000.
