OLYMPIA — The Thurston County coroner says a 53-year-old Lacey man who died after being booked into the Nisqually Jail suffered a heart attack.
Coroner Gary Warnock said Tuesday that the manner of James F. Gandy’s death last Sunday evening is classified as being due to natural causes.
The Olympian reported that Warnock said Gandy also had several fractured ribs that likely were broken as medics attempted CPR.
The man had been booked into the jail Sunday afternoon by Lacey police for investigation of domestic violence.
The death is under investigation by representatives of several area police agencies.
