Nash County inmate dies after medical emergency at UNC Nash

Nashville, N.C. (WITN) - An inmate passed away in the hospital after experiencing a medical emergency at the Nash County Detention Center, according to a press release from the Nash County Sheriff's Office.

Damico Miguel Morrow, 20, of Washington D.C., experienced a medical emergency while incarcerated in Nash County. Several inmates and detention officers rendered first aid, according to the sheriff's office.

Nash County EMS personnel responded, stabilized Morrow, then transported him to UNC Nash for further treatment. Morrow died on November 24 at UNC Nash after experiencing another medical emergency. The release of information was delayed until next of kin were contacted.

Morrow was incarcerated due to being charged with one count of common law robbery and second-degree kidnapping on June 19. He was also being held on an extradition/fugitive warrant from another state that does not come with an opportunity to be released on bond.

The cause of death has not been determined at this time. Additional details will be released once the North Carolina Medical Examiner's Office performs an autopsy.
