Macoupin Accidental Death

Wed, 20 Feb 2013 10:55:14 CST
A Coroner‘s Inquest concerning the manner and cause of death of William Curtis Smith who was being held in the Macoupin County Jail at the time of his death was held Tuesday at 10am at the Macoupin County Courthouse.

During the inquest, the jury heard testimony from Officer Jody Groves of the Virden Police Department, Macoupin County Jail Superindendent Dean Plovich, Illinois State Police Detective Patrick McGuire and Coroner Brad Targhetta.

An autopsy was preformed by Forensic Pathologist Dr. John Ralston. The results were read by Coroner Targhetta. Dr. Ralston determined a head injury occurred at least 24 hours prior to death but less than one week prior. Mr. Smith had been in custody less than one day; therefore, his injury occurred prior to when he was taken into custody.

After hearing the testimony the jury deliberated in private. The jury determined William Curtis Smith died from a subsurface hematoma which resulted from a fall and that it was an accidental death.
