SLED investigating death
The State Law Enforcement Division is investigating the death of an individual who had just been taken into custody last night by the Pageland Police Department.
SLED Public Information Officer Tommy Crosby said EMS was called when the person experienced a “medical event.” While en route to a hospital, the individual died.
“The request for SLED to conduct an investigation of an in-custody death is common practice for local agencies,” said Crosby. “We will have a thorough, independent investigation of the incident. No additional information is available while we have an active, ongoing investigation.”
More information will be posted to Breaking News as details become available.
