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.

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.
