EVERETT — A 41-year-old inmate was found dead about 10:30 a.m. Thursday at the Snohomish County Jail.

The man was housed in the jail’s medical unit, said Shari Ireton, spokeswoman for the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, which runs the jail.

Corrections staff found the man “not breathing and unresponsive,” she said.

Paramedics were summoned.

A death investigation by sheriff’s detectives was under way Thursday.
