A registered sex offender was found dead in his jail cell early Tuesday.

Michael A. Bozarth, 25, of St. Joseph, was found dead by Buchanan County Jail staff after fellow inmates notified employees of a possible deceased individual, said Sheriff Mike Strong. Jail officials believe Mr. Bozarth died between 10 p.m. Monday and 2:15 a.m. Tuesday after neighboring inmates heard “commotion” from his cell.

    His death is indeed very suspicious and the authorities have to conduct an investigation to find out the real cause behind his death. However, after conducting autopsy, they should immediately contact a VA cremation agency to perform the last rituals.
