A 65-year-old man incarcerated at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center died yesterday (Monday), triggering a police investigation.
According to the Fairfax County Sheriff’s Office, a sheriff’s deputy found the man “unresponsive” in his cell at around 9:20 a.m.
“The deputy immediately rendered aid until relieved by ADC medical personnel,” the news release said. “Rescue arrived, continued lifesaving measures and transported the inmate to a hospital. The inmate was pronounced deceased by hospital personnel.”
The Fairfax County Police Department confirmed this morning (Tuesday) that detectives from its Major Crimes Bureau are investigating the death in accordance with the department and sheriff’s office policies.
Police identified the man as George Redmond, stating that he was originally arrested by Alexandria City police for failing to appear in response to a warrant for charges of trespassing and destruction of property.
The Alexandria City Police Department later transferred custody of Redmond to Fairfax County, where Redmond had been in jail since Friday (March 25).
“The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy, but preliminarily, there are no signs of foul play,” the FCPD said.
This is the first death at the county jail since April 2021, when Christopher Fojt, 30, of Reston, was reportedly found unresponsive in a cell and died after being transported to a hospital.
