To combat the presence of fentanyl in the correctional facility, Jonsen said he has taken “extraordinary” measures, including conducting multiple facility searches, more frequent welfare checks and numerous K-9 searches.
Neighbors of the homicide victim told officers they had heard screaming in the immediate area early Saturday morning, but did not call police. A concerned friend called in a missing person report on Monday.
A second inmate at the Elmwood Correctional Facility in Milpitas was also found unconscious in the jail bathroom, was revived and is hospitalized in stable condition. Neither man was identified by the Sheriff’s Office.
