    Hello. You article “Any information regarding identification and cause of death will be determined and released by the Medical Examiner’s Office at a later date.” I am wondering about this death of a 22 year old man who was in Snohomish County Jail on charges of possession of marijuana, and am wondering if the cause has been found out and released. It just seems unusual, especially being the third death in an 8 month period of an inmate in custody for violation of the controlled substances act to happen in Snohomish County. The first two had other charges, prostitution, and possession of stolen firearms, but this third one is just a kid, he was 22. What does his family think? What happened to him? Why is he dead?
