OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office says that it’s investigating the death of a county jail inmate.
The Sheriff’s Office said in a Tuesday news release that 56-year-old Daryl Clinton died Saturday at a hospital where he was taken after being found unresponsive earlier in the day.
Clinton was arrested, following an August 6th auto crash, on a warrant for possession of controlled drugs with intent to deliver.
Court records show that he was being held on a probable cause warrant, but do not list formal charges against him.
The Sheriff’s Office says its special investigations unit is investigating the death. A suspected cause of death has not been released.
