HARTFORD, Kentucky — Kentucky State Police are investigating the death of an inmate at a western Kentucky jail.

Police say Ohio County jail employees notified them around 5:45 a.m. CDT Saturday and medical workers were contacted, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police are investigating the cause, but no foul play is suspected. Detectives are reviewing video footage from cameras inside the facility.
