A man died Sunday while in the custody of the Denton County Jail, records show.
Stacy Wright, 49, of Dallas, is listed as the man who died. Records show Wright was jailed on Friday on a charge of criminal trespass from January. None of his charges in Denton County were for violent offenses.
Orlando Hinojosa, a spokesman for the Denton County Sheriff’s Office, confirmed Tuesday an inmate died while in the custody of the jail. He did not say how Wright died.
Hinojosa said the Texas Rangers are investigating the death. Lonny Haschel, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, said publicly-available details about how Wright died are sparse as of Tuesday evening.
