A Limestone man being held in the Washington County Detention Center died Thursday morning after being taken by ambulance to the Johnson City Medical Center, Sheriff Ed Graybeal said in a news release.
Charles Frederick Young III, 35, of 631 Saylor Hill Road, was being held in the jail on a violation-of-probation charge.
Young was on probation for possession of Schedule I drugs for resale and possession of Schedule IV drugs, Graybeal said.
The cause of death was not immediately known.
"The investigation is being turned over to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. There is no foul play suspected at this time," Graybeal said.
Young's death is the second this week of a Washington County jail inmate.
Stewart Peppers, 22, of Johnson City, died Monday afternoon after being taken by ambulance to the Johnson City Medical Center.
Peppers was held in the jail on charges of aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a weapon, simple possession, manufacture of a controlled substance and two counts of vandalism.
That investigation was also turned over to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. Graybeal said earlier this week that no foul play is suspected in Peppers' death.
Deputies said the deaths are not related. Autopsy results on Young and Peppers were not available this morning.
