JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A Clay County Sheriff's Office Detention Deputy was found dead in his home after the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office performed a wellness check.
According to CCSO, 46-year-old Brian Cason did not arrive to work at the Clay County Jail for his shift Wednesday night. Coworkers became concerned and contacted JSO.
Once JSO arrived at Cason's home, deputies discovered that Cason was dead.
At this time, preliminary reports by JSO suggests there were no signs of foul play, however, the Jacksonville Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death.
