MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (AP) - Officials say an autopsy shows no sign of foul play in the death of a South Carolina jail inmate earlier this week.

Berkeley County Coroner Bill Salisbury told local media outlets that toxicology results are still pending in the death of 32-year-old James Perritte of Summerville. Salisbury says it could take several weeks to get those test results.

Perritte was found dead in his cell at the jail in Moncks Coroner on Tuesday afternoon. The coroner said there were no signs of trauma on the man’s body.

Perritte had been arrested earlier Tuesday by Summerville police on several drug charges.
