(Updated 5:30 p.m.) Alexandria law enforcement is investigating the death of Anthony Mouf, a 25-year-old Fairfax County man in Alexandria’s William G. Truesdale Adult Detention Center
According to a city release, Mouf was found suffering from an apparent medical emergency alone in his cell in the jail’s booking area.
“The Alexandria Sheriff’s Office and the Alexandria Police Department are investigating the in-custody death of a federal inmate at the William G. Truesdale Adult Detention Center,” the release said. “Around 8:10 a.m. on Wednesday, May 18, deputies discovered an inmate suffering an apparent medical emergency alone in his cell in the booking area of the jail.”
The release said deputies immediately requested 911 assistance and called for assistance from medical staff and began administering emergency treatments. Medics from the Alexandria Fire Department responded and provided treatment, but Mouf died at 8:44 a.m. — about a day-and-a-half after he was arrested.
“Because this is an in-custody death, the Alexandria Police Department is conducting the death investigation,” the release said. “The Sheriff’s Office will conduct a review of the incident to ensure all policies and procedures were followed.”
The death comes less than a week after inmate deaths were reported in a DC jail, at least one of which is believed to be caused by an overdose.
