Brent Patterson, sheriff’s office spokesman, said Burt and the other inmate fought about 8:30 a.m. Friday. Burt was rendered unconscious, taken to Huntsville Hospital, and put on life support. He died about 8:30 p.m. Friday.
The fight remains under investigation and charges are expected to be filed, Patterson said.
Sheriff Kevin Turner said in a news release: “Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Just because he was in our jail does not mean he was not someone’s loved one. His death deserves, and will receive, the same level of professional investigation that is expected in all cases.”
