A Guilford County jail inmate in High Point has died. 

The Guilford County Sheriff’s Office says 27-year-old Dakota Stevens was found unresponsive but still breathing in his cell late Monday afternoon.

He was hospitalized but died the next day. Authorities are investigating, but at this point, foul play is not suspected, according to a release from the sheriff’s office.

Stevens had been held in the High Point Detention Center for about a week after being arrested for missing a court appearance.

The Guilford County judicial calendar shows that Stevens was scheduled to be in court this month on a felony drug charge.
