Will County Sheriff Mike Kelley was notified this week by the Will County Coroner's Office that two recent inmate's deaths were the result of natural causes.
According to a press release, Jacob Adejola Sr. was remanded from court to the Will County Jail to serve a 180 day sentence for an unspecified charge.
Adejola was held in the medical unit of the jail and on May 3, due to abnormal lab results, the medical staff recommended he be transported to a hospitla.
On May 4, the day after he was transported, Adejola was pronounced deceased at the hospital.
The Will County Coroner's Office was contacted and the results of the report indicate that Adejola died of natural causes resulting from cardiac arrhythmia.
At around 5:45 a.m. on Apr. 23, inmate Aaron Bowers was found by correction staff at the jail on his bunk and unresponsive.
Emergency medical assistance began on Bowers and Joliet Fire personnel were called to the jail.
Bowers was transported to an area hospital, where he was pronounced deceased at 6:24 a.m. by doctors.
The coroner's office ruled that Bowers died of natural causes resulting from a dilated cardiomyopathy.
