(ELKHART CO.) - At the request of Elkhart County Sheriff Brad Rogers the Indiana State Police is investigating the death of an inmate at the Elkhart County Jail.

The state police were contacted Tuesday morning after jail officers discovered the inmate unresponsive in his cell.

The 60 year-old inmate, Harry J. Ross II, was found unresponsive sitting up in his bed after he failed to report for his daily medication at approximately 3:40 a.m. A jail staff nurse and officers attempted to revive Ross but were unsuccessful. He was pronounced dead at the jail. Ross was housed in the cell alone.

Ross was taken to Kalamazoo Michigan where an autopsy was performed today. Preliminary results from the autopsy point to a cause of death from a medical event. The state police have not found any evidence that would point toward foul play.
