Morrison was transported to TJ Health Columbia for medical clearance prior to his booking as officers suspected him of swallowing narcotics.
Preliminary investigations show that jail deputies had contact with Morison on at least four separate occasions between 6:00am and 1:15pm. The interactions were to remove Morrison from his cell to complete a specific task. This does not include cell checks that are conducted every 30 minutes, all of which were observed to be okay.

At approximately 1:29pm, Morrison’s cellmates called to the attention of jail staff that he needed help. Jail deputies saw that he was shivering and lethargic and took him to the nurses station. At approximately 2:00pm, it was determined that Morrison needed to be transported to TJ Health for additional treatment and at 2:01pm dispatch was called. Adair County EMS arrived and Morrison walked himself over to the stretcher where he was then transported.
At 3:41 pm Morrison was pronounced deceased at TJ Health Columbia and Adair County Deputy Coroner Mike Keltner was notified. A review of security footage from a local business does show that it appears he removed something from his pocket and ingested it prior to officers reaching him before his arrest.
