OMAHA — Authorities are investigating the death of a 24-year-old man who was serving a short sentence in the Douglas County Jail.
Victor Harman was found unresponsive by jail staff Monday afternoon in his cell, the Douglas County Department of Corrections said. Jail staff and medics tried to revive Harman, but he was declared dead at the jail. Authorities have not said what caused his death.
Harman had begun a 30-day sentence last week for convictions of second-offense drunken driving and second-offense driving while his license was revoked.
State law requires a grand jury investigation any time someone dies in custody.
