Detectives say they have notified the next of kin of the inmate who died in the sick bay of the Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island Sunday.
61 year old Earl Colston was found unresponsive in his cell in the sick bay area of the detention center Sunday morning. He was pronounced dead at Lower Keys Hospital. He had been in sick bay for most of the time he’d been jail due to medical conditions he suffered from prior to his arrest.
Colston, who is from Miami Gardens, was arrested by the Florida Highway Patrol on June 5th, charged with driving with license suspended, third or subsequent offense.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is the investigating agency on the case.
