A 19-year-old inmate in the Clay County jail died Tuesday morning.

According to the Clay County Sheriff's Office, Daniel Linsinbigler, of Orange Park, experienced some type of medical emergency while in custody and was found unresponsive when checked on by a detention deputy making his normal morning rounds at 9 a.m.

Multiple detention personnel responded and performed CPR on Linsinbigler in an attempt to revive him, but they, along with efforts by Clay County fire and rescue personnel were unsuccessful.

Linsinbigler died at Orange Park Medical Center at about 10 a.m.

Linsinbigler doesn't have any immediate family members in the area, but the attempt to locate any next of kin for notification purposes is ongoing, deputies said.

Linsinbigler was in jail awaiting arraignment scheduled for Thursday on charges of indecent exposure by unlawfully exposing his sexual organs. Deputies said that on March 2, he was seen running naked on public grounds, entered a woman's hotel room at the Stay Suites Hotel and began yelling Bible scripture at the woman.

Another woman told deputies she saw Linsinbigler running naked and saying "he could save everybody, and he was God," according to a police report.

The Sheriff's Office said it requested the assistance of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in investigating the death, which is standard procedure when an in-custody death of an inmate occurs.
