A St. Louis County jail inmate suffered a stroke before he died at a hospital in December, according to an autopsy  report.

Jo’von Mitchell, 31, died of a brain hemorrhage related to a stroke, the autopsy report released Tuesday said. His death wasn’t caused by trauma or drug use, though “Mitchell’s age and the location of the stroke are uncommon,” according to a press release from the county. 

The county released information about Mitchell’s death after coming under pressure from a citizens advisory board and county council members to be more transparent.
