Three staffers suspended at St. Louis County jail after latest death

CLAYTON, Mo. - Three St. Louis County Jail staffers have been suspended after the death of an inmate.

According to our partners at the Post-Dispatch a nurse refused to come to the inmate's cell after he complained of pain an autopsy showed he died of a Perforated Ulcer.

It was the fourth inmate death involving the jail this year. Each of the cases involved staffers who did not act with urgency when an inmate was in a medical crisis.

County Executive Sam Page says he's appointing new members to a board to advise county officials about the jail, including a doctor, a clergy member, and a former inmate.
