A 36-year-old Genesee County Jail inmate with a history of heart-related medical issues collapsed in the general housing unit yesterday morning and an hour later was pronounced dead at UMMC.
Wallace E. Urf, of 6262 Telephone Road, Pavilion, fell unconscious at about 7 a.m. Correctional officers responded immediately and began CPR. Urf was transported to UMMC and pronounced dead at 8 a.m.
Urf was incarcerated Nov. 27 on an alleged parole violation.
The NYS Commission of Corrections was notified as required by law and will investigate the cause and circumstances surrounding Urf's death.
There is no sign of foul play, the Sheriff's Office said.
The exact cause of Urf's death is unknown pending an autopsy.
