"She was in a cell by herself," he said.
Jail cameras were operating in the common area, but not focused on Good's cell.
"Nothing was captured but the response," Ricketson said.
Thursday, Twiggs County Coroner Harold Reece confirmed that Good was found unresponsive in her cell and later died.
She was taken to the emergency room of Coliseum Medical Centers in Macon, where she was pronounced dead.
Twiggs sheriff's Col. James Faulk said Good was arrested on Feb. 26 and had been in the custody of the sheriff's office pending her court case ever since.
Ricketson said her booking sheet showed she was charged with a couple of traffic charges and theft.
