Update (3-20)

Decatur County Sheriff Ken Murphy revealed that Satterfield was serving just a two week sentence for an OWI conviction. Monday was his fourth day at the Decatur County Jail.

First Report (3-19)

Detectives say foul play doesn’t appear to be involved in the death of an inmate in Decatur County.

Michael Satterfield, 38, of Greensburg, was rushed from the Decatur County Jail to a local hospital after he was found unresponsive and not breathing Monday night around 6:30 p.m.

He was pronounced dead at Decatur County Memorial Hospital.

An autopsy was scheduled to be performed by the Decatur County Coroner Tuesday which could lead to more information. Police believe Satterfield may have died from natural causes.

“According to our detective leading the investigation it doesn’t appear that any foul play was involved, it doesn’t appear it was a suicide,” said Indiana State Police Public Information Officer Noel Houze.

Indiana State Police will keep the investigation open until autopsy results are complete.
