COLUMBUS, Georgia (AP) - A western Georgia sheriff says the state Bureau of Investigation will probe the recent deaths of three inmates who were being held in the county jail.
Muscogee County Sheriff John Darr announced the investigation Tuesday, days after the third inmate death at the Muscogee County Jail in just over two weeks.
On Saturday, authorities found 57-year-old Isaac Kindred dead after a fight with a second inmate who has since been charged with murder and aggravated assault. Details on the motive that led to the assault have not been disclosed.
A 46-year-old inmate, Lori Carroll, died Oct. 24. Her cause of death is unclear. On Oct. 29, 21-year-old inmate, Maurice Grier, died of a brain aneurysm.
