Deputies investigating a death on Charlotte County jail property

Published: Updated:

Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a death right outside their facility in the pickup/dropoff waiting area of the jail.

According to CCSO, a person was found dead during morning patrols of the campus by jail personnel. The dead person was located in the bench area of jail visitation, which is an outlying building from the jail.

The benches are frequently used as a waiting area for recently released detainees or people waiting to pick up pending releases. CCSO says at this time it does not appear that there was any other person involved in the death.

Investigators are currently on scene with members of the Forensics Unit.
