CAIRO, Ga. (WCTV) – An investigation is underway into an inmate’s death at the Grady County jail.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation confirms to WCTV its agents were called in to investigate a death at the jail last Friday.

According to the GBI, 20-year-old Trevon Davis was arrested on Thursday, March 11, and placed in a medical isolation cell per COVID-19 protocols. On Friday, March 12, at around 11:45 a.m., inmates found Davis hanging and unresponsive in his cell, the GBI says.
