Genesee County Sheriff Says Inmate ODÂ?d In Jail 5-11-2011

Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell revealed more information detailing the death of Jesse Goode, the inmate who was found dead last month inside the county jail.
During a news conference Wednesday, Pickell said autopsy results revealed that Goode died of a heroin overdose.
Pickell said he believes the illegal drugs were brought into the jail by inmates in the department’s work release program. Pickell said Goode likely snuck them in through his body cavity.
Officials said the city can’t afford a body scanner at the jail -- and by law, they can’t search the body cavity.
Goode's family has hired an attorney to look into Jesse’s death, according to previous reports.
Pickell said he’s considering ending the work release program in the meantime.
The sheriff also said the FBI is assisting in the investigation.
