Inmate Died Of Brain Aneurysm, Couldn't Have Been Saved

Posted October 30, 2002

— A medical examiner's report shows an inmate who died in the Wake County jail last weekend couldn't have been saved.

According to the report, Timothy Perry died of a brain aneurysm.

Perry was in jail for failing to pay child support.

Investigators said on Saturday that Perry complained of a headache and jailers gave him medication. When he started having a seizure later in the day, workers took him to the hospital.

He died Sunday afternoon.

A Wake County sheriff's major said jail staff followed protocol and did everything they could to help Perry.
