Major Crimes Detectives Investigating In-Custody Death
Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Detectives are currently investigating the in-custody death of an inmate at the Spokane County Jail. Deputies were called to the Spokane County Jail at 1:10 p.m. regarding an inmate who was found deceased in a cell while inmates were being released for “out time” for that floor.
Major Crimes detectives are processing the scene and conducting interviews of inmates and corrections staff. The Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office will release the name of the decedent at a later date, when appropriate.
