Inmate dies at juvenile court center

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        A 17-year-old inmate collapsed and died while playing basketball around noon Saturday during a recreation period at the Hamilton County Juvenile Court Youth Center in Mount Auburn.

        Bob Dugan, center superintendent, said the coroner will perform an autopsy today to determine the cause of Marcus Scott's death. Emergency room doctors described it as “sudden cardiac death,” he said.

        The center's staff attempted to revive Marcus until Cincinnati firefighters arrived, Mr. Dugan said. Marcus was pronounced dead at University Hospital.

        The teen had exhibited no signs of a medical condition since being incarcerated July 24 on non-violent felony charges, Mr. Dugan said.
