Difficulty breathing caused teenage inmate's death
Charles Williams, 17, an inmate at the Tangipahoa Parish Jail died Tuesday after he complained of breathing difficulty. Employees of the jail responded to a call for help that Williams was struggling for breath. The nurse on duty immediately performed CPR until first responders took over but were not successful in reviving the victim. Williams had a history of asthma and allergic reactions which might have caused his death as there were no signs of trauma or foul play found on his body. An autopsy will be conducted by the coroner's office to find out the exact cause of death.
