Now, here are the deets as the political fallout continues . . .
First, the official word from the County . . .
Overnight Inmate Incident
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – On Thursday, July 20, at approximately 11 p.m., an individual was brought into the Jackson County Detention Center (JCDC) by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office on a parole violation.
Upon arrival to intake, the 35-year-old man was evaluated by a nurse. Due to the inmate’s combative behavior and to prevent him from harming himself or correction’s officials, he was placed in a restraint chair pursuant to national accreditation standards. During the approximate 2.5 hours he was in our facility, he was checked numerous times by health care professionals and Corrections staff.
When determining that there was a health emergency, numerous medical professionals performed life-saving measures on him. Emergency personnel were immediately called and transported him to Truman Medical Center, where he died.
Corrections staff reported the incident to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office.
