ODOC, Lawton police investigating fatal Lawton Correctional Facility stabbing

LAWTON, Okla. – Oklahoma Department of Corrections agents and Lawton police are investigating the fatal stabbing on Friday of a Lawton Correctional Facility inmate.

LCF staff found the victim, identified as Brian C. Piper, 31, suffering from multiple stab wounds inside the facility. He was transported to an area hospital and pronounced dead at 6:30 p.m.

Piper was serving multiple sentences out of Pontotoc County for possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, possession of substances to be used as precursors to manufacture methamphetamine, and using an offensive weapon while in commission of a felony.

ODOC is investigating the incident and will send the results of the investigation to prosecutors for potential criminal charges once it is complete.

Visitation at LCF remains canceled this weekend due to the incident.
