Inmate dies at north Louisiana jail
SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - A Louisiana man has died in his cell at the Caddo Correctional Center in Shreveport.
The Times reports 57-year-old Kevin Randall Weldon, of Shreveport, was found unresponsive Tuesday by his cellmate who was returning from a court appearance.
Life-saving measures were used by jail staff and the Shreveport Fire Department but Weldon could not be revived. The sheriff's office says he was pronounced dead on the scene.
Weldon was in jail for his fourth DWI and possession of a Schedule II drug. He'd been in jail since Monday.
An investigation into his death is ongoing. An autopsy will be conducted to determine how he died. The coroner's office says results should be expected in four to six weeks.
