ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) - York County officials and the State Law Enforcement Division are looking into the death of a 29-year-old inmate in the York County jail.

The sheriff’s department says it has asked SLED to assist in the investigation of the death of John David Dellinger, who was found unresponsive in his cell around 8 a.m. Sunday.

Sheriff’s spokesman Trent Faris said in a news release that officers immediately began lifesaving measures.

Coroner Sabrina Gast told multiple media outlets that Dellinger was taken by ambulance to Piedmont Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Dellinger was arrested Friday by deputies on charges of grand larceny and obtaining property under false pretenses.
