At this point it is unclear what caused Harrington's death, but officials said there is no indication of foul play.

The Sheriff's Office Inspectional Services Division, with assistance from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and Cobb County Medical Examiner's Office, is conducting an investigation.

Harrington was serving three life sentences for a rape at the Woodhollow Apartment complex on Powers Ferry Road in 2003.

At the time of the crime, Harrington was a door-to-door salesman, police said. officials said he may have used his employment as a ruse to get to victims.

Love the title of this story. People who are dead usually tend to be unresponsive.

Harrington was serving three life sentences for a rape ========================================= I took a peek at his record, 13 items shown, ranged from 1 yr, 5 yrs, 10 yrs, 15 yrs and a few 20's. Didn't go back to 2003 most of the stuff was around 2008 in Cobb and Paulding. If you counted up the years of those 13 convictions they came out to 126 yrs, guess he got early release. No idea why no mention of any rapes were on his prison record.

You should have kept the original title of the story. I think it went something like "Inmate found unresponsive, dead." This is for people who may wonder what the earlier comments were about.

I used to work with him briefly. He was originally arrested for robbing three banks. When he was alrady in prison, they tied him to at least one rape through DNA evidence. A pretty nasty piece of work!
