MARIETTA — Cobb Sheriff’s deputies are investigating the death of an inmate at Cobb Jail.
Sheriff Neil Warren said in a statement released Monday that Robin Tracy Harrington, 37, was pronounced dead at WellStar Kennestone Hospital at 11:30 p.m. Sunday, after being found unresponsive in his cell.
There are no signs of foul play, Warren said.
Harrington had been in custody at Cobb Jail since Dec. 1, 2011, when he was returned to Cobb from the state prison system to face charges of rape, aggravated assault, aggravated sodomy and burglary, according to the statement. Last week, he was ordered to serve three life sentences plus 20 years.
“Anytime there is a death of an inmate in custody, it is a tragedy for both the family and the staff of the Sheriff’s Office,” Warren said in the statement. “My thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Harrington’s family.”
