Agents with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) are investigating the death of an inmate at the Caddo County Jail.

According to the OSBI, Darius Randell Robinson, 41, was arrested in Oklahoma County on four child support warrants. He was then transported to Caddo County, where the warrants were issued.

Monday evening, authorities said Robinson attempted to escape his cell when jailers entered to clear items from the cell he had destroyed. When jailers tried to restrain Robinson, he stopped breathing.

Agents said jail staff attempted CPR and resuscitated Robinson, but he later died at the hospital in Anadarko. The Caddo County Sheriff’s office then requested OSBI’s help to investigate this case.

The medical examiner will perform an autopsy to determine the exact cause and manner of death.
