CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ga. -- An inmate in the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center died Monday.
Bobby Kilgore, 71, of Palmetto was arrested June 6 on a probation violation charge. He had a condition that caused him to be housed in the jail's medical unit.
The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office said Kilgore was under the care of the jail's medical staff when he passed away.
An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday at the GBI Crime Lab. The GBI will also investigate, as it does with every inmate death.
