BUTLER COUNTY JUSTICE CENTER INMATE DIES OF NATURAL CAUSES
An inmate at the Butler County Justice Center has died.
Butler County Sheriff Mark Dobbs tells KWOC News that 44 year old Donald Ray Herrold III, of Poplar Bluff, was found unresponsive in the shower on Monday.
An officer administrated CPR and Herrold was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Butler County Coroner Andy Moore says that an autopsy was performed Tuesday morning that revealed that Herrold had a fatal upper respiratory infection and has had this issue for a long time.
Moore also stated that Herrold’s death had nothing to do with his incarceration.
