Inmate Dies In Kansas Jail

Associated Press - February 26, 2015 6:50 am

A sheriff in northeastern Kansas’ Pottawatomie County says foul play isn’t suspected in the death of a 24-year-old jail inmate.

Sheriff Greg Riat says the unidentified inmate was pronounced dead at a hospital early Wednesday shortly after being found unresponsive in his cell by a jailer.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is handling the case.

Specifics about why the man was jailed were not immediately disclosed.

Funeral arrangements are pending.

Once again a death involving a sheriff department. On e again a KBI investigation which will find nothing to protect the sheriff just like they did here in Saline county. Time to wake up people and demand impartial investigations.
