(Sarpy County, NE) -- An inmate at the Sarpy County jail died Friday after being found unresponsive in his cell.
The Sarpy County Department of Corrections says staff found 64 year old Walter Hurley unresponsive Friday morning. Corrections says officers and the nursing staff immediately began life saving measures. Emergency medical crews from the Papillion Fire Department responded and took over emergency care, but Hurley could not be revived and was pronounced dead at 7:02 a.m.
Hurley had been at the Sarpy County jail since June 6. He was arrested by the Bellevue Police Department and charged with Delivery of Controlled Substance, Possession of Controlled Substance and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Hurley's cause of death has not yet been determined, but Corrections leaders say he had a history of chronic health issues. As is the case whenever an inmate dies in custody, a grand jury will be convened after the investigation is completed.
