The Kentucky State Police is investigating the death of a 45-year-old man.

Jason Attebury, of Manitou, was pronounced dead at Baptist Health in Madisonville around 1:31 a.m. Friday morning.

According to a release from the jail, inmates notified jail staff that Attebury was having difficulty breathing around 12:50 a.m. and was “immediately” attended to by on site medical staff and jail deputies.

Hopkins County Jailer Mike Lewis said Attebury was arrested on Dec. 10, 2019 and was being held on multiple charges.

Lewis said that foul play is not suspected at this time but the KSP investigation is still ongoing.
