Two Rivers Correctional Institution reports in-custody death (Photo) - 11/05/19

An Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) adult in custody, Terry Lee Allen, died the evening of November 4, 2019.  Allen was incarcerated at Two Rivers Correctional Institution (TRCI) in Umatilla and passed away while on hospice at the facility. As with all in-custody deaths, the Oregon State Police have been notified.

Allen entered DOC custody on June 29, 2015, from Deschutes County with an earliest release date of November 30, 2022.  Allen was 68 years old. Next of kin has been notified.  

DOC takes all in-custody deaths seriously. The agency is responsible for the care and custody of 14,700 individuals who are incarcerated in 14 institutions across the state. While crime information is public record, DOC elects to disclose only upon request out of respect for any family or victims.

TRCI is a multi-custody prison in Umatilla that houses approximately 1,800 adults in custody. TRCI participates in prison industries with Oregon Corrections Enterprises including institution and industrial laundry, mattress manufacturing, and sewing. Other institution work programs include repair and cleaning of irrigation ditches, maintenance of local baseball fields, and work with local cities and the Hermiston School District. The facility provides a range of correctional programs and services including education, religious services, and behavioral health services. TRCI opened in 2000.
