2 inmates die at county jail
Authorities are investigating the deaths of two inmates at the Darlington County jail over the weekend.
One inmate died Friday night. The other, a federal prisoner, died Saturday.
The inmate who died Friday night has been identified as Patrice Latoya Watson McFadden. She was being held on two counts of felony DUI and two counts of reckless homicide in a collision near Society Hill that killed two men.
The cause of her death was not determined. The State Law Enforcement Division has been asked to investigate.
In the other case, the inmate’s name had not been released by press time Monday, nor had the cause of death. Officials said this person was a federal prisoner.
Local media reported that the man suffered a “cardiac event.”
