DANVILLE, Ind. (WTHR) - Police are investigating the death of a Brownsburg man who was being held at the Hendricks County Jail.

Police say 40-year-old Bryan T. Casey was arrested by Indianapolis International Airport police on a warrant for failure to return to lawful detention in Hendricks County. A deputy transported him to the Hendricks County Jail where Casey was put into a holding cell Tuesday afternoon.

Investigators say his behavior was normal throughout the afternoon and evening and that Casey showed no signs of distress, eating dinner and talking with other inmates.

During a routine count of inmates around 11 p.m., deputies found Casey unresponsive in the holding cell and called for medics. Attempts made by the medics to revive him were not successful.

Casey's death is currently under investigation by detectives and the coroner's office.
