Rolf Harris, who was some days ago rushed to the hospital for blood poisoning has been found dead in his prison cells on Friday morning.
The cause of his death is not immediately known but statement from the Prison officers says his body has been sent for autopsy.
Prison officers rushed the children’s entertainer Rolf Harris last week to hospital after he fell ill in his cell.
The 86-year-old was apparently taken from Stafford prison with suspected blood poisoning.
The sun newspaper reported earlier this year how Harris was taken to hospital twice to control his diabetes and for chest pains which shows the prisoner was battling several diseases in the prison cells.
Blood poisoning, otherwise known as sepsis, is triggered by an infection or injury and can be fatal if untreated.
Harris was sentenced to five years and nine months in 2014 for sexually assaulting four young girls.
Harris was among the high-profile figures convicted under the Met’s Operation Yewtree, set up in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal.
Rolf Harris is an Australian entertainer whose career has encompassed work as a musician, singer-songwriter, composer, comedian, actor, painter and television personality.
