Lloyd Roberts who was incarcerated at Two Rivers Correctional Institution, died the morning of June 12, 2019. Roberts passed away at the infirmary. As with all in-custody deaths, the Oregon State Police have been notified.

Roberts entered DOC custody on October 9, 2018, from Wasco County with an earliest release date of October 26, 2024. Roberts was 72 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.
