On Monday, June 14, 2021, at 10:49 PM, an adult male inmate at the Cois Byrd Detention Center suffered a medical emergency while housed alone in a cell. Deputies began life saving measures before the inmate was transported a local hospital for continued medical attention. Despite the efforts of hospital medical staff, the inmate continued to decline and was pronounced deceased a short time later at the hospital.

Riverside Sheriff’s Department investigators responded and assumed the investigation. The cause of death will later be determined by the Coroner’s Bureau. The identification of the victim will not be released at this time pending notification to the family. There are no signs of foul play and due to the ongoing status of the investigation, no further information is available at this time.
