Carroll County Sheriff Jim Ross confirmed Monday that an inmate died Thursday at the county detention center.

Ross said next of kin have yet to be notified, and the Arkansas State Police are investigating.

“I’m sorry I can’t be more forthcoming at this time,” Ross said in a text message to a reporter.

Chief Deputy Maj. Jerry Williams said the sheriff’s office asked the ASP to investigate as standard procedure.
