Man Dies In Jail After Receiving No Treatment After Assault By Other Inmates

The attorney for the estate of Jed Hawk Myers pieced together this video of the last hours of Myers’ life in a medical cell in the Yamhill County Jail on May 27, 2015 to early May 28, 2015. The images and recordings of jail guard statements come from the county’s and McMinnville Police Department’s investigations into the death. Myers, 34, was assaulted by other inmates and then moved to a medical cell in the jail, but received little to no treatment, according to a federal lawsuit. He can be seen writhing in pain, urinating blood and repeatedly trying to seek help by pressing the cell intercom button over a five-hour period before he’s found dead, the suit says.
