“INCIDENT REPORT – January 31, 2022
Two Inmates Transported to Local Hospital
On Sunday morning, at about 11:50 AM, deputies at the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center found two inmates unresponsive in their shared cell. Deputies provided medical aid until emergency medical personnel arrived and transported both to a local hospital where one was pronounced deceased.
Deputies passed by the cell of 27-year-old Quyen Tran and found him and his cellmate unresponsive. The deputies began rendering medical aid, including administering Narcan to each inmate because it was believed they had been exposed to or overdosed on drugs. Both inmates were transported to a local hospital where Tran was pronounced deceased. The other has since been released from the hospital.
The Crimes Against Persons team and Identification Unit responded to take over the investigation and process the scene. The surviving inmate admitted to investigators the two used drugs that same morning. An autopsy and toxicology will be conducted of Tran to determine his official cause of death.
Tran was booked at the Public Safety Center for murder and felony domestic violence on June 4, 2020 by the Modesto Police Department”.
