Oklahoma County inmate pronounced dead
OKLAHOMA CITY – Authorities are investigating the death of an inmate at the Oklahoma County Detention Center.
On Thursday, officials say 66-year-old Charles Land was found unresponsive in his cell at the center.
Around 9 p.m., Land’s cellmate told guards that Land was not breathing.
Officers immediately began CPR, but Land was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
Land was booked into the Oklahoma County Detention Center just three days earlier for a warrant for failure to appear on charges related to a DUI/transporting an open container case.
His cause of death will be determined by the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner’s Office.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is currently investigating the case.
