Inmate dies in Scott Co. Jail

27 NEWSFIRST has learned new information about a death investigation at a central Kentucky jail.

The Scott County coroner tells us the inmate found dead at the detention center overnight is 22-year-old Jeremy Alcorn.

Other inmates discovered Alcorn's body in the shower.
