A woman died in Johnston County jail custody on Tuesday while en route to the hospital, the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office said.
Kelly Naumann, 45, was being taken to the hospital after jail staff called 911 to report a “medical emergency.”
The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office didn’t identify the nature of her “medical emergency.”
The Sheriff’s Office consulted with the Johnston County District Attorney’s Office and requested that officials with the State Bureau of Investigation review Naumann’s death.
Her death came a week after being incarcerated. County records show she had been booked into jail on Aug. 8 for a probation violation.
No other details were initially provided.
The News & Observer has requested more information from county and state officials about the incident.
