LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A death investigation is happening at the Bullitt County Jail, after an inmate was found unresponsive inside a jail cell on Friday morning.

Just a guess on my part: they were probably detoxing. If that's the case, it won't be the first time someone died trying to detox in the freak'n hole at Bullitt County Detention Center.

I hate the Courier-Journal I'm a paid subscriber and all I can get is the abstract for articles about this death.

From what I can gather, he was not given the meds that he normally took everyday.....And I need to clarify: it was not a case of detox at all. Medical negligence maybe (most likely / IMHO), but not detox.
