Mother wants answers after son dies in Jefferson County Jail

(KTVI) – A 38-year-old inmate at the Jefferson County Jail was found in his cell dead Friday.

Terry Edwards was found around 4:00am. There was another inmate in the cell, but authorities said they do not believe the death was foul play.

Edwards was arrested Sunday by St. Louis County Police in Fenton. He had a warrant out of Jefferson County for driving under suspension.

His mother spoke exclusively with FOX 2′s Anthony Kiekow. She said she spoke with him before he was transferred to Jefferson County Wednesday.

“He said his head was hurting and his jaw was stiff,” Susan Stetina said. “My son did not have any serious medical problems until he was arrested.”

St. Louis County Police were not available for comment Friday.

Edwards leaves four kids.

“I want to know what happened to my son, and I won’t rest until I know for a fact what happened,” Stetina said.
