A 31-year-old male inmate at Larimer County Jail died Wednesday after he was taken to Poudre Valley Hospital in Fort Collins, according to Larimer County Sheriff’s Office.
The man, whose name is withheld pending next-of-kin notification, died at 12:57 p.m. and had been working in the jail kitchen in the morning when he complained of not feeling well. He was allowed to use the restroom but collapsed and “was discovered nonresponsive near the restroom area,” according to a sheriff’s office news release.
The man was then taken to the hospital. Cause of death is pending an autopsy report.
He is the third inmate at the jail in Fort Collins to die this year while in custody.
Tiffany Ann Nobi, 25, and Charles Edward Betts, 53, were both transients in unrelated cases who died in January. Nobi died after showing signs of illness that was found not to be connected with meningitis. Betts died of cardiac arrest, according to the Larimer County Coroner’s office.
The sheriff’s office has announced a press conference Thursday morning regarding the most recent death.
