Death of Cabarrus inmate under investigation

An inmate of the Cabarrus County Jail died Sunday after suffering a seizure.
Timothy Andrew Parker apparently had the seizure Saturday shortly before noon. Other inmates alerted jail officials. The jail nurse examined Parker and found him unresponsive. He was transported to Carolinas Medical Center-NorthEast. He died at 8 Sunday morning.
The Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division began an investigation and found there was no reason to believe an altercation occurred in the jail. The investigation is continuing.
Parker’s body was sent to the Mecklenburg County Medical Examiner’s Office in Charlotte for an autopsy.
Parker, 23, had been jailed on Tuesday, May 13, for a probation violation with bond set at $3,000. His last known address was 6801 Bost Cut Off Road, Concord.
“Without information from the autopsy available at this time, it is very early to verify a definitive cause of death,” said Sheriff Brad Riley.
“Early indications from the investigation are that foul play does not appear to exist. However, we want to be 100 percent sure. The investigation also revealed Parker had previously suffered severe medical injuries that could have possibly contributed to his death.”
