BURLINGTON, N.C. (AP) — The state Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in North Carolina says in a report that a man died in a North Carolina jail of natural causes.
The report cited by local media outlets says 49-year-old Daryl Augustus Carter, of Savannah, Georgia, had several existing conditions, including evidence of an enlarged heart, coronary heart disease and some hypertension.
According to the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office, officers found Carter unresponsive on his bunk in the Alamance County jail around 10:10 p.m. on Sunday. Paramedics were summoned, but Carter couldn’t be resuscitated.
The sheriff’s office said Carter had complained of flu-like symptoms when he was admitted.
