Staff and medical personal responded and performed life saving measures on Wesley Keith Clark, but were not successful.

BCSO says initial observations indicate the cause of death to be of natural causes and does not appear to be a suspicious or self-inflicted. However, an autopsy will be performed to determine an official cause of death.

Clark had been in the Brunswick County Detention Center since March 4 for felony probation violation.
