Inmate Dies in Custody in Denton County, Texas

Courthouse 4

A prisoner at the Denton County, Texas jail passed away on December 30, 2018. Stacy Wright, who was only 49 years of age, was initially incarcerated in the jail on the prior Friday as a result of alleged criminal trespass. It is likely that the Texas Rangers will investigate Mr. Wright’s death. We have no personal knowledge of what occurred, and as of this post, we are uncertain as to the cause of Mr. Wright’s death. Further, we make no allegation of any wrongdoing against anyone.
