Spokane Co. inmate who died on Tuesday identified

The Spokane County Medical Examiner has identified the inmate as 39-year-old Sharona Marie Carroll-Camps. The cause and manner of death are pending.

SPOKANE, Wash. — The Spokane County Medical Examiner has identified the Spokane County Jail inmate who died Tuesday morning as 39-year-old woman Sharona Marie Carroll-Camps.

Her death on Tuesday morning marks the ninth inmate death in the jail since June 15, 2017.

According to Spokane County spokesman Jared Webley, a Spokane County Detention Services Corrections Officer responded to a call for assistance after Carroll-Camps was found unresponsive at 2:20 a.m. on Tuesday.

Staff began life-saving efforts until Spokane Fire and American Medical Response crews arrived on scene, according to Webley. A single dose of Narcan was administered, but Carroll-Camps was pronounced dead on the scene at 3:05 a.m., according to Webley.

The Spokane County Sheriff's Office is conducting an investigation at the request of the jail, according to Webley. The sheriff's office has not overseen jail operations since the county Board of Commissioner's took over in 2013.

The Spokane County Medical Examiner's Office will release the inmate's name, cause and manner of death "when appropriate to do so," Webley said.
