Update On Vigo Jail Death Investigation

by

More on a story about a man who died in the Vigo County Jail earlier this week.

Autopsy results show that 48 year old William Powell suffered a ruptured intestine and died as a result of the infection caused by the contents spilling into his body.

Police have arrested 39 year old James Ross in connection with the death and he is now facing manslaughter charges.

Authorities say that their investigation shows that it all started on Sunday at a residence on North 8th Street.

Powell was visiting a woman and got into a fight with her cousin James Ross.

During the fight it is alleged that Ross hit Powell knocking him down and then he started kicking Powell while wearing heavy work boots.

Police were called and it was determined that Powell had a warrant out for his arrest.

He was taken to Regional Hospital, where he was treated and released.

He was then taken to jail where he later died.
