An autopsy will be performed Monday to determine what killed a Tabor Correctional Institution inmate who died Saturday, Assistant Columbus County Coroner William Hannah said.
Jay D. Neugin, 39, became ill Saturday evening and was taken buy ambulance to McLeod Loris hospital in nearby Loris, SC, where he died a short time later, Hannah said.
Neugin appeared to die of natural causes, Hannah said. State law requires that an autopsy be performed for all in-custody deaths, Hannah.
