Haywood, NC (FOX Carolina) -

The Haywood County Detention Facility says they found an inmate dead in his jail cell Monday night.

Jailers say it happened around 10 p.m., when they found the man unresponsive. They immediately called for emergency assistance. He was transported to MedWest-Haywood Hospital and was later pronounced dead.

There is no word on what caused the man's death. He was housed in a jail cell by himself.

As a matter of policy, the Haywood county Sheriff's Office is now letting the State Bureau of Investigation handle the matter.
