PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

An inmate at the Multnomah County Detention Center was found dead in a cell Sunday, according to the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office. 

At about 7:45 a.m., corrections deputies were conducting a routine morning “wake up” check at the MCDC and found the inmate unresponsive in a cell. 

Medical staff responded immediately and began life-saving care. Emergency medical technicians arrived minutes later and pronounced the inmate dead at the scene. 

Detectives have responded and are conducting a full investigation. The preliminary investigation indicates no signs of foul play at this time.
