Clay County Sheriff’s Office members are mourning the death of a coworker, 46-year-old Detention Deputy Brian Cason.

Coworkers became concerned when Detention Deputy Cason did not arrive last Wednesday at the Clay County Jail for his shift.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office was contacted and a wellness check was conducted at Cason’s home in Jacksonville.

JSO made entry into the home and discovered Cason dead in his bed.

Preliminary investigations show that there were no signs of foul play, according to JSO.

The Jacksonville Medical Examiner will determine cause of death.

Detention Deputy Brian Cason was hired by the Clay County Sheriff’s Office in July of 2012.

His supervisors and coworkers describe him as a hard-working, helpful, quiet man. Prior to joining the CCSO, Cason worked for the Florida State Prison System.

He was married with adult children.

It is considered “undetermined” at this time while everyone awaits the Medical Examiner’s findings on cause of death.
