The SBI and Granville County Sheriff’s Office are investigating to learn what happened last week that left one inmate dead and sent a second inmate to the hospital.
At 5:04 a.m. Friday, Mar. 11, , two inmates were found unresponsive in their cell at the Granville County Detention Center, according to a press statement from Granville County Sheriff John B. Hardy III.
Life-saving measures were undertaken by Granville County Sheriff’s Office personnel and EMS was called. EMS also attempted life-saving measures, but one inmate was pronounced dead at the scene. The inmate’s name is being withheld at the request of his family at this time.
Inmate Kevin Burton Munn was transported for medical treatment and remains hospitalized. The Granville County Sheriff requested assistance from the State Bureau of Investigation and the SBI will investigate the matter.
WIZS has reached out to the SBI but has not heard back as of this publication.
