Shawndre Delmore, 24, is being remembered as "a twin, a son, a grandson," according to Attorney Mawuli Davis, "who had taught himself to play the guitar and was beloved by his family."

Delmore is the 6th Fulton County Jail inmate to die in 6 weeks. He's the 10th inmate to die over the past year.

Davis is representing Delmore's family after the young man was found unresponsive inside the Fulton County Jail on Sunday, August 31st. He died later at Grady Memorial Hospital. He'd been booked into the jail in April on charges including burglary in the second degree. Attorney Davis says Delmore was being held on a $5,000 bond.

It's the same facility where former U.S. President Donald Trump and 18 others surrendered in August after being indicted on charges of alleged interference in the 2020 election in Georgia.

There have been 9 other deaths at the Fulton County Jail within the past year including 34 year old Samuel Lawrence who died after being found unresponsive on August 26th. He'd been an inmate at the jail since December 26, 2022 charged with 2nd Degree Arson. Lawrence was being held on a $30,000 bond. Twenty three year old Dayvion Blake died after being stabbed inside the jail on August 31st. The Fulton County Sheriff's Office issued a press release with details about an incident that contributed to Blake's death.

It was in July 2023 when the U.S. Justice Department announced that it would be conducting an investigation into the Fulton County jail system. It came during an investigation into the September 2022 death of LaShawn Thompson. The Fulton County Commission recently reached a $4 million dollar settlement with the family who claimed Thompson had 'been eaten alive by insects and bed bugs" inside the jail.
