Justin Stieb, 37, of Delta died while in custody at the Delta County Jail. Delta County Sheriff Fred McKee said Stieb died about 4 p.m. Saturday, apparently of natural causes.
An autopsy was performed Monday morning. County coroner Kevin Lucy is awaiting results of a toxicology screen but said foul play is not suspected.
Sheriff McKee said Stieb had received medical treatment the previous day and was placed in an isolation room where he could be monitored by camera. Detention officers noticed a lack of movement and went to check on him.
“We have requested a CBI investigation for full transparency,” McKee said.
He added Stieb’s is the first death in the county jail since he joined the department in 1991.
