Local Kankakee County Inmate Passes Away After Medical Incident in Jail
Shortly after noon today (2/3/22), Kankakee Fire Department paramedics were dispatched to the Jerome Combs Detention Center for an unresponsive inmate. The Kankakee County Coroner’s Office arrived on scene and pronounced the subject deceased after Kankakee County Corrections Officers, JCDC Medical Staff and Kankakee Fire Paramedics were unable to revive the subject, who has been identified as 37 year-old, Terrance D. Washington, of Bourbonnais.
It is believed that Washington suffered from an apparent medical incident. However, the Coroner’s Office will await the results of an autopsy prior to making any definitive confirmation.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Mr. Washington, as well as the medical staff and Corrections staff at the Jerome Combs Detention Center,” said Sheriff Mike Downey.
