Local woman dies at Montgomery County Jail

A 27-year-old woman died Friday morning at the Montgomery County Jail, according to the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office.

Sasha N. Garvin of Riverside was pronounced dead at 8:15 a.m. Friday. The cause and manner of her death have not yet been determined, but a call from the jail indicated it could be drug-related.

A Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman would only say they were “investigating” and wouldn’t say what the office was investigating or if there was an incident report available.

A 911 call from the jail at 330 W. Second St. obtained by this news organization indicated jail personnel called for medics.

“Hi, this is the jail. We’ve got an emergency here in the jail. I need a medic unit,” a male voice told a dispatcher. “We possibly are going to have two inmates, so if you want to send two.”

When asked by the dispatcher what the issue was, the man said, “It’s probably going to be an overdose, times two.”
