Inmate Dies at Fairfax County Adult Detention Center

Detectives from Fairfax County Police Major Crimes Bureau are investigating the in-custody death of 65-year-old inmate George Redmond. The Sheriff’s Office reported on March 28, 2022 at approximately 9:20 a.m., a Sheriff’s deputy found Redmond unresponsive in his single cell in the Adult Detention Center (ADC). The deputy rendered aid until relieved by ADC medical personnel, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Rescue arrived, continued lifesaving measures and transported Redmond to the hospital, where he was pronounced deceased. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy, but preliminarily, there are no signs of foul play, according to police.

Redmond had been in the custody of the Fairfax County Sheriff’s Office and incarcerated at the ADC since March 25. On that date, he was originally arrested by Alexandria City Police, FCPD said. Custody was transferred to FCPD officers, and Redmond was taken to the Fairfax County ADC. 

He was arrested for a failure to appear warrant related to an original charge of trespassing and destruction of property. Our detectives are coordinating with the Fairfax County Sheriff’s Office to gather the facts and circumstances surrounding this death.

Fairfax County Sheriff's Office policy dictates that an in-custody death must be investigated by the Fairfax County Police Department. The investigation is underway.
