Hall inmate found dead in cell

POSTED: October 5, 2014 8:20 p.m.

An inmate has been found dead in a Hall County Jail cell, officials said.

A jailer with the Hall County Sheriff’s Office found the inmate dead Sunday at 6 a.m.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been called in to investigate the death, and information about the cause of death will not be released until the investigation is performed, according sheriff’s office officials.

Sherry Lang, director of public affairs for the bureau, said it would not release any additional information on Sunday.

Hall County Coroner Marion Merck did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Deputy Nicole Bailes said the office cannot provide any further information because the investigation is now under the jurisdiction of the GBI, but sheriff’s office internal affairs investigators plan to do an independent investigation into the death.
