An outside investigation has cleared Jefferson County sheriff’s officers of any wrongdoing in the death of a 23-year-old jail inmate, detectives announced Wednesday.
Port Hadlock resident Kevin Bledsoe, 23, suffered a heart attack brought on by “acute methamphetamine intoxication,” said Detective Sgt. Steve Snover of the Clallam County Sheriff’s Department.
An autopsy discovered that Bledsoe had an enlarged heart, Jefferson County officials have said. The medical condition was apparently unknown to Bledsoe, his family or friends.
