Who died, when and where in NC county jails

If you haven’t yet read the first installment of the News & Observer’s five part series Jailed to Death, you should.

But don’t stop there.

You should also check out the database of 151 inmates who died in custody in 65 N.C. county jails between 2012 and 2016.

The database is a good platform for further stories that take a closer look at some of these deaths – as well as a way for N.C. residents to get a look at the reality in their home county.
