SBI investigating inmate death at Pamlico Correctional Institution

Agents from the State Bureau of Investigation are investigating the death of inmate Johnny Autry #0013149. Autry died Saturday night at Pamlico Correctional Institution.

“Autry, 44, came to staff in a paranoid state Saturday evening and they spoke with him for more than an hour. Staff were unable to calm him before he entered into medical distress and became unresponsive,” stated a press release from the North Carolina Department of Public Safety. “Staff members performed CPR and paramedics arrived and continued lifesaving measures, before Autry was declared deceased shortly after 9 p.m.”

Autry was being held in medium custody and was serving a sentence as a habitual felon and for drug possession. He was due for release in December 2021.
