SHERMAN, TEXAS -- A Grayson County Jail inmate died early yesterday morning at Texoma Medical Center.
Sheriff Keith Gary says inmate Edward Wayne Chappell was in jail for 146 days for not making restitution on probation.
Gary says Chappell was admitted to the hospital for having blood in his vomit.
Chappell died around 3 a.m. Wednesday.
"You hate when something like this happens at a jail but I think we did what we could do. I talked with the chief nurse yesterday and we went over what information we had preliminarily and it was just determined that he was a very, very sick man," Gary said.
Both Grayson County investigators and initial reports from a Dallas medical examiner say that Chappell died from either Hepatitus or liver disease.
