Iberia inmate death probe awaiting autopsy

Iberia Parish officials are awaiting the autopsy results of an inmate who died Saturday night in the parish jail, officials said.

Junius J. Thibodeaux, 47, was found unresponsive in his cell at 11:10 p.m. and pronounced dead at 11:55 p.m. by the Iberia Parish Coroner’s Office, Lt. Richard Fleming said.

Fleming said Sheriff’s Office investigators do not suspect foul play and that an autopsy was planned for Monday.

Thibodeaux was sentenced April 14 to five years in state prison, Fleming said.
