SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say an investigation is under way following the death of a 29-year-old inmate at a jail in Northern California.
Marin County Sheriff’s Lt. Craig Scardina said Saturday that the inmate was pronounced dead after he was found unresponsive inside his jail cell on Friday.
Scardina says CPR attempts by Marin County jail personnel and paramedics from the San Rafael Fire Department failed to revive the inmate whose name has not yet been released.
Scardina says the case is being investigated by the Novato Police Department and the Sonoma County Sheriff-Coroner as part of its protocol when a death occurs while an inmate is in custody.
Novato police also did not release any further information on Monday.
