An inmate at the Chemung County Jail died Tuesday.
According to the Chemung County Sheriff’s Office, 35-year-old Leo Disbrow swallowed an illegal contraband narcotic during a housing unit search conducted Tuesday morning. A short time later, Disbrow started showing symptoms of an overdose. He was taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead. A preliminary investigation indicates Disbrow inserted the contraband into his anus when he entered the jail last Friday on charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance.
The investigation into his death is ongoing.
