The afternoon of September 6, 2019 inmate TYLER GRIST, 28 of Austin, died at Dell Seton Medical Center.

 

On August 31, 2019, corrections officers observed Grist to be unresponsive, but breathing in his cell. He was immediately taken to the medical clinic, then transported by EMS to the hospital. Grist was treated in the Intensive Care Unit for several days before ultimately passing away on September 6th.

 

Grist had been in custody since July 13, 2019, charged with Arson (Felony 2). He was later charged with Assault Causing Bodily Injury for assaulting an inmate on July 25, 2019.

 

An investigation by the Internal Affairs Unit, the Texas Rangers and the Medical Examiner’s Office is underway, as is customary with any death in custody. The autopsy was conducted on September 8, 2019 and the final report is pending toxicology results.
