The Snohomish County Jail in downtown Everett

Around 7 a.m. this morning, a 34-year-old male inmate was sitting alone waiting to be escorted to video court when he collapsed inside the Snohomish County Jail. The housing unit corrections deputy immediately called a medical emergency and staff began lifesaving efforts. Aid units responded to the jail and took over lifesaving efforts. The 34-year-old male was transported to Providence Regional Medical Center where he later passed away.

There were no apparent signs or observations that indicated an obvious cause of death.

The inmate, an Everett resident, had been booked into the jail on November 15, 2020 by the Everett Police Department for three Everett Municipal Court warrants for reckless driving, violation of a domestic violence no contact order, and fourth-degree domestic violence assault, as well as one Marysville Municipal Court warrant for violation of a domestic violence no contact order.

Following his death, a morbidity review will be conducted. This is a review of the death from a clinical standpoint and is independent of the death investigation, which is being conducted by the Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit. Both are completed pursuant to operating protocol for all in custody deaths.

The identity of the inmate, as well as cause and manner of death, will be released by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.
