An inmate in the Rockdale County jail died Saturday night after she was found unresponsive in her cell, a sheriff’s spokeswoman said.
Jamie Krischelle Henry, 40, of Douglasville, was found by deputies and medical staff about 8:25 p.m. during a routine check, Yolande Lovingood-Moore said.
“Medical staff transported Ms. Henry to Piedmont Rockdale Hospital, where she was pronounced dead a short time after arriving,” Lovingood-Moore said.
Henry was on a hold for another agency, according to jail records.
The sheriff’s office will investigate the incident.
The GBI will conduct an autopsy, according to Lovingood-Moore.
It is the second incident of a Rockdale County inmate to die in less than three months.
Shali Tilson died March 12, nine days after he was jailed, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
The GBI ruled Tilson died of blood clots due to dehydration.
