Autopsy Reveals No Physical Trauma on Calhoun County Inmate Found Dead

A preliminary autopsy report of the man found dead inside his cell at the Calhoun County Jail shows no physical trauma. A jailer found 34-year-old Brett Taylor unresponsive inside his cell early Saturday morning.

Taylor was booked into the jail for public intoxication and blood work showed multiple substances in the man’s body. Sheriff Matthew Wade said Taylor had been aggressive with a jailer, and when the jailer checked on him just two hours later, Taylor was unresponsive.

Calhoun County Coroner Pat Brown told us while there were no signs of physical injury, it could be up to six months before the final report is complete.
