GBI probes death of south Georgia inmate

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is investigating after a Coffee County jail inmate died Saturday.

Shannon Ashley Rewis was arrested in Douglas on probation violation charges Friday.

As the 28-year-old was being booked at the jail, he “developed medical issues,” the news the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release Monday.

Rewis was taken to Coffee Regional Medical Center where he died about 5 p.m.

His body was taken to the GBI Medical Examiner’s Office in Macon for an autopsy.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the GBI’s Douglas Regional Office at 912-389-4103, or call the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office at 912-384-4227.
