A 30-year-old man was committed to the Adult Detention Center (ADC) on the evening of April 21, 2021, on multiple charges including possession of a schedule I or II drug with a firearm on or about his person. He was being held without bond.
On the following night, at approximately 11 p.m., a medical emergency was called and rescue was summoned when the post deputy found the inmate unresponsive in his cell. The deputy immediately rendered aid until relieved by ADC medical personnel. Rescue arrived, continued lifesaving measures and transported the inmate to a hospital. On April 27, 2021, at 7:29 p.m., the inmate was pronounced deceased by hospital personnel.
Fairfax County Sheriff's Office policy dictates that an in-custody death must be investigated by the Fairfax County Police Department. The investigation is underway. Look for updates on the Police Department news blog when additional information becomes available.
