Deputies: Foul play not suspected in Pinellas inmate death

LARGO — Pinellas deputies are investigating the death of an inmate at the Pinellas County Jail.

According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, 48-year-old Cheryl Ann Frazier was found unresponsive in her cell in the medical wing of the county jail at 14400 49th Street N around 5:15 a.m. Tuesday.

Detectives said Frazier was housed alone in a single cell in the medical wing, where she was being monitored for a "preexisting medical and mental issues."

A detention deputy making routine bed checks saw Frazier was unresponsive and alerted medical staff. There were no obvious signs of injury, and detectives said they don't believe the death is suspicious.

The Pinellas-Pasco Medical Examiner will perform an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death.

Frazier, of 1175 Pinellas Point Dr. S, No. 69, in St. Petersburg, was booked into the jail on April 20 after she was arrested by St. Petersburg police on a disorderly conduct charge.
