PRINCE GEORGE, Va. -- An inmate who recently died at a Virginia regional jail was a mentally disabled man who was reported to be in good health before he was incarcerated.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports the state medical examiner’s office has not yet determined the cause of death for 29-year-old Michael Dillon.

Officials have said Dillon went into distress while being examined by medical staff in late March at the Riverside Regional Jail.

The owner of a residential treatment facility in Petersburg where Dillon was a resident says he was in good health when he left.
