Officials with the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office reported Tuesday (27 June) that a 53-year-old man from Portland perished on Thursday of unspecified causes while in the custody of the Multnomah County Inverness Jail on a United States Marshals Service hold.
Wednesday at 10:30 p.m., Kashi Abram Harmon was discovered unresponsive in the shower area of the facility, according to police. The jail’s deputies and medical personnel attempted to save Harmon’s life before transporting him to a local hospital, where he later died.
Do you know that for the third year in a row, no fireworks, bottle rockets, or mortars are permitted on Portland streets on July 4th? Portland’s Consumer Fireworks Ban has sparked social media reactions from various people:
In 1993, Harmon was convicted of multiple counts of s*x assault, burglary, and drug possession, according to court records. In February, a federal grand jury indicted Harmon for being a felon in possession of a firearm, and he was imprisoned pending trial because prosecutors considered him a threat to the community. According to police, Harmon entered Inverness on June 15.
The cause of death of Harmon is going to be established by the Oregon State Medical Examiner’s Office, and the sheriff’s office has also stated that it is conducting an investigation into the matter.
