Inmate in Custody of Sheriff’s Office Dies following Medical Emergency
A 54-year-old male inmate in the custody of the Alexandria Sheriff’s Office died Saturday, March 26, at Inova Alexandria Hospital. The inmate was being housed in a medical unit of the William G. Truesdale Adult Detention Center when he experienced what appears to be a medical emergency. Deputies called 911 at 7:44 p.m. and medics with the Alexandria Fire Department transported the man to Inova Alexandria Hospital where he died at 11:29 p.m.
Because this is an in-custody death, the Alexandria Police Department will conduct the death investigation. In addition, the Sheriff’s Office will conduct its own internal review.
The inmate had been held at the William G. Truesdale Adult Detention Center on federal charges since March 4, per an agreement with the U.S. Marshals Service. His name will be released after his family has been notified of his death.
