Blood clots suspected cause of death for jail inmate
Union County Sheriff Tommy Wilhite said Monday that blood clots are believed to have caused the death of a 19-year-old inmate at the Union County jail last week.
“[Union County Coronor] Mark Golding said that the cause of death has been ruled as two pulmonary embolisms on both sides of her heart,” Wilhite said.
The inmate, Janice Nichols of Guntown, collapsed in the shower at the jail last Thursday morning. She had been taken to Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union County, where she was pronounced dead at 10:30 a.m.
Nichols had been awaiting a Circuit court hearing after being arrested last year for child endangerment.
