Inmate Dies at Neshoba County Jail- Foul Play Is Not Suspected
The Neshoba County Sheriff’s Office is cooperating with Mississippi Bureau of Investigations (MBI) regarding the death of an inmate at the Neshoba County Detention Facility. Just after 11:00 pm on Sunday, August 21, 2022, Neshoba EMS was dispatched to a medical call at the Detention Facility.
Details are limited at this time due to an active investigation, the death is believed to be the result of a medical issue, and foul play is not suspected. The identity of the inmate is not being released at this time due to pending next of kin notifications.
We are deeply saddened by this as we always try to provide the best care we can for our inmates. We extend our heartfelt condolences to the inmates’ family.
Mississippi Bureau of Investigations and Neshoba County Medical Examiner’s Office was requested and is leading the investigation as part of standard procedures in this matter.
