INDIANAPOLIS - The death of a Johnson County inmate is not the first time someone has died while in a county jail in 2014.
Indiana Department of Correction reports at least six previous in-custody jail deaths so far this year, including one in Allen County, one in Bartholomew County, one in Cass County, one in Hamilton County and two in Grant County.
The Call 6 Investigators uncovered surveillance video showing Kendra Shaw, a Grant County inmate, in the hours and minutes leading up to her death.
Shaw died of an asthma attack.
The Indiana Department of Correction said for county jails, the average is eight to 12 deaths statewide per year.
IDOC tracks jail deaths and, when asked, will review the investigative procedures with the jail.
The agency said most jail deaths are suicides, and many are overdoses and natural causes such as cancer and heart attack.
