Inmate Dies in Winkler County Jail in Kermit, TexasMonday, February 12th, 2018
Valorin Michele Rodriguez, 42 years of age at the time, passed away on February 5, 2018 while being held in the Winkler County Sheriff’s Department Jail in Kermit, Texas. Information in this post was obtained from a custodial death report filed by the Winkler County Sheriff’s Department. We make no allegation of any wrongdoing but are instead simply providing information.
Ms. Rodriguez was allegedly serving a 10-day sentence. The report does not indicate that Ms. Rodriguez had any pre-existing medical or mental health issues. The report indicates that Ms. Rodriguez was found at approximately 10:35 p.m. on October 5, 2018 in a physical state which indicated that there was clearly something wrong. Ms. Rodriguez ultimately was found unconscious, and she later passed away. The report indicates nothing about what if anything jailers had observed in Ms. Rodriguez prior to this incident, and/or what substances (if any) she might have been given that could have caused her death.
