A forensic autopsy is scheduled to confirm the cause of death for an inmate of the Pueblo County Jail. The sheriff says early indications are that there is nothing suspicious about the death.

Sheriff Kirk Taylor confirmed the inmate died Wednesday at Parkview Medical Center, where the inmate was taken for a medical furlough after becoming sick in the jail Tuesday. 11 News is working to contact the county coroner to confirm the inmate's name.

The coroner is scheduled to perform the autopsy Thursday to confirm the cause of death was related to the illness. The sheriff says they have "no reason to believe it was anything other than medical."

    Not jealous, just embarrassed at the way our government has used media to manipulate society. I dropped out of high school early to help with bills at home but have always made good money (60k a year),enough to support my family and charitable causes. Though we argue on here, the sad thing is we would probably get along great if we met face to face. Gotta go now or I'll miss my tee time.

    @Brainwashed.... You must not have a job, of course, the military has ranks and with that being said you must follow as long as its within the regulations. Again, I made the decision to go in after some college. They pay for the degree I seek as well as a law degree. So unless you have it much better, which I highly doubt, you should just thank me. Your level of education at Everest College doesn't compare to mine. I chose a good path at my young age and for you to try and talk bad about being a soldier.... well, i cant get mad because ur a loser, i don't take orders now, but having some discipline makes a person better... That includes no prison or jail and not hearing from uneducated idiots like yourself who has to depend on "mommy" for a place to stay... Im probably younger than you and I definitely have done more in my life than you, so the title I give myself is actually an understatement. Don't be jealous buddy. Jealous people don't go anywhere in life!

    Funny title "the man", who admits taking orders. You probably take orders from your wife now. It doesn't take heart to be a soilder, usually just a choice from a judge, enlist or become a felon. At such a young age as 18, many mistakes can be made. Mistakes that can land you in prison or the military.

    @ Brainwashed, I laugh at people like you that couldn't do it. Its okay, I understand that your useless and probably couldn't take orders and do what I have done. I don't have hard feelings when it comes to people like you. No need to be angry (brainwashed), it takes heart to be a veteran of the armed forces. Maybe if you would stop living in your mothers basement and see what the world has to offer, you would be a little more happier. Wait, you must be a felon, Sorry!!!!
