An inmate at the Stock Island Detention Center died overnight of apparent natural causes.
66 year old Michael Williams of Key Largo was housed in the Sick Bay portion of the jail where he was being taken care of for numerous serious medical conditions, according to detectives who spoke with medical staff at the jail. He reportedly began having breathing difficulties at about 1:45 a.m. and, with medical staff in attendance, stopped breathing a short time later.
The man was in jail for a 2013 case involving multiple counts of possessing child pornography. The case was a multi-agency investigation resulting from a tip to the Internet Crimes Against Children task force. He was arrested on the charges in April of 2013 and had been in jail since that time.
His body will be turned over to the Medical Examiner for an autopsy. Detectives say the death appears to be natural.
