BATAVIA, OH (FOX19) - The Clermont County Coroner says there are no obvious life threatening injuries in the death on an inmate in the Clermont County Jail.

Dr. Brian Treon says he'll need to wait for lab results to come back before he can tell a cause of death for 29-year-old Jason Vdovick of Milford. Treon says his initial autopsy did not find any injuries that could be considered life threatening. It could take several weeks before the results from of his tests to come back from the lab.

Clermont County Sheriff A.J. Rodenberg says Vdovick, who was serving six days for a DUI conviction, became disruptive in his cell Saturday morning. When a Jail Supervisor couldn't calm him, Rodenberg says force became necessary, although they don't say what type of force was used.

Vdovick became unresponsive, and emergency medical personnel were called in. They transported him to Mercy Hospital Clermont where he was pronounced dead.

An investigation of this incident is underway jointly between Sheriff's Office investigators, the Clermont Count Coroner's Office, and the Ohio Attorney General's Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCI).
