CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - The death of a St. Louis County inmate is under investigation.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 34-year-old Cedric Dunn was pronounced dead at the St. Louis County Justice Center on June 13. Jail administrator Herb Bernsen says there did not appear to be signs of foul play, but Clayton police and the county medical examiner are investigating.

Bernsen says Dunn complained of not feeling well earlier that morning and nurses checked on him.

Dunn arrived at the jail June 9 awaiting trial on a misdemeanor stealing charge.
