GEORGETOWN, Texas (KXAN) — An inmate at the Williamson County Jail died July 31, county sheriff Mike Gleason announced Monday.

In a press release, Gleason said county detectives are investigating the in-custody death of Lynn Talley Urbis, 45, after he fell ill about a month after he was arrested.

Urbis was arrested by Round Rock police on June 27 and was taken to a hospital July 26 after he had trouble breathing. Five days later, Urbis died at the hospital, county officials said.

An official cause of death is pending an autopsy, county officials said, and detectives have called on another law enforcement agency to conduct an independent investigation into Urbis’ death.
