Local Sheriff Deryl Loar stated that nothing out of the ordinary or unusual happened while Martinez was in police custody.
“There’s no other inmates that could touch him. No other officers that could touch him. Nothing unusual happened on the way to the jail,” Loar said to the Palm Beach Post.
An autopsy for Loar is scheduled for Thursday.
