Statement from Jailer White—-
First and foremost, I would like to send out my condolences to the family and friends of Glenn Morrison Jr age 33. After being arrested he was sent to TJ Sampson Hospital of Columbia where the doctor medically cleared him for incarceration.
At 1:36 A.M. on Sunday April 15, 2018 Morrison was booked into the Adair County Jail. He was periodically checked on throughout the morning and all through the day by deputies per protocol. During cell checks Morrison was awake, and was interacting well with deputies and cellmates in isolation.
Morrison was alert at breakfast, when he saw pre-trial for bond, and lunch time and up until a cell check when the deputies seen him distressed. Deputies notified jail nurse and myself and immediately 911 was called. Upon arrival of EMS Morrison walked to stretcher and laid down, then was transported by EMS again to TJ Sampson Hospital of Columbia for further medical attention.
I’d like to say that Glenn Morrison Jr was always respectful and would always joke and speak to you no matter where he was at. In closing, the jail staff and myself will greatly miss him and our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
