The name of an inmate who recently died at the Vanderburgh County Jail has now been released by the county coroner.
The Vanderburgh County Coroner has identified the inmate who died as 64-year-old Edwin Faulkner of Vanderburgh County.
The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office said that Faulkner was pronounced dead on Tuesday after being found unresponsive in his jail cell during a routine cell check early that morning.
After Faulkner was found unresponsive, the sheriff's office says confinement officers and medical staff responded and began CPR, and that medics from the Evansville Fire Department and AMR also arrived to assist. At 4:51 a.m., medics ceased resuscitation efforts upon orders from a physician, the sheriff's office said.
The VCSO Criminal Investigation Section is investigating the death, but the sheriff's office says that no foul play is suspected.
Faulkner's autopsy is scheduled to take place at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
