No foul play suspected in inmate's death

Thursday, November 15, 2018

Although no cause of death has yet been determined for a 20-year-old Hays County inmate who died at a facility in Limstone County he had been oursourced, foul play is not suspected. 

Pending toxicology testing, Limestone County Sheriff Dennis Wilson said the death “will be considered a natural.”

Wilson said a final ruling will not be made until all lab work is complete, a process that can take several weeks.

Hays County authorities have not released the name of the inmate, the charges against him or how long he had been in the Limestone County Deterntion Center at the time of his death on Nov. 8. 

The preliminary ruling reinforces what Wilson told the Mexia news in a story published in the Daily Record earlier this week — that other inmates said the man suffered some sort of medical incident while in a dayroom.

Hays County said the inmate was medical screened before he was transferred from the local jail.
