An inmate from the Sacramento County jail died at the hospital Tuesday morning. Sacramento Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Sgt. Lisa Bowman said the man was transported to the hospital from the jail to deal with an undisclosed medical issue,
"I know that he was taken to the hospital for a medical related issue that the jail medical services could not attend to." said Sgt. Bowman.
She continued to say that the county coroner will do an autopsy to determine the cause of death,
"This wasn't suspicious, this was not the result of a fight or anything like that. It was an inmate death that we received a notice from the hospital early this morning," emphasized Sgt. Bowman.
The 57-year-old inmate had been at the jail since May waiting for his next court date.
