According to Washington County Sheriff Brent Miller a male inmate was found dead in the Washington County Detention Center Friday morning. 

He said the Indiana State Police are investigating the death, which, he said would likely not involve foul play. 

“We’re following protocol,” said Miller. “We are being 100% transparent.”

Miller said the Washington County Prosecutor was notified immediately.

An autopsy was being performed this morning by the Washington County Coroner.

The Indiana State Police said they rarely issue a press release if there was no foul play involved.
